Mark Zuckerberg is on board with those who want immigration reform. According to Yahoo!, Facebook’s CEO spoke out publicly for the first time in favor of immigration reform in the U.S.
The 29-year-old shared his thoughts on an issue he’s been working on behind the scenes for a while during the debut screening of Documented, an autobiographical documentary by activist and journalist Jose Antonio Vargas.
In his remarks, Zuckerberg countered the notion that he and other Silicon Valley leaders are just trying to secure more H1B visas for high-tech workers. The non-immigrant visa falls under the Immigration and Nationality Acts and allows U.S. employers to temporarily employ foreign workers in specialty occupations.
