Facebook's Zuckerberg to Meet With GOP House Leaders

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who has been pushing for a revision of U.S. immigration law, plans to meet with the top four Republicans in the House next week in Washington.

The meeting, scheduled for Sept. 19, will include House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia, Whip Kevin McCarthy, and Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington, the head of the Republican conference, according to two leadership aides who weren't authorized to speak publicly.


Topics of discussion will include a range of issues such as Internet privacy, the economy, a revision of the tax system, and changes to immigration law, according to one of the aides.

Zuckerberg has joined other technology companies to create the pro-immigration advocacy group Fwd.us.

While the Senate passed its comprehensive immigration plan on June 27, the House has yet to take up related legislation. House leaders oppose the Senate's comprehensive measure and have decided on a bill-by-bill approach, and no votes have yet been scheduled.

Facebook, Google, and Microsoft face scrutiny over what kind of information they turn over to the federal government as part of the National Security Administration's surveillance programs.

Denise Horn, a Washington-based spokeswoman for Facebook, didn't immediately reply to an email seeking comment about the meeting with the Republican leaders.

He's rich. Same old crap. Bad form for people in office to have 'meetings' with walking stacks of money. Same crap the president does. SO SICK OF IT.

The bar tender says - Hello Mr. President.
