Mark Zuckerberg’s FWD.us lobby group of investors has hired a former Senate staffer to help pass a “reconciliation” amnesty through the Senate without GOP votes, according to the New York Times.
“The pro-immigration group FWD.us hired Kevin Kayes, a former assistant Senate parliamentarian, to help hone the procedural argument in favor of allowing the [reconciliation] maneuver this year,” the New York Times reported May 3.
The news comes as former GOP President George W. Bush steps up his Koch-backed push to get GOP senators’ support for an immigration bill that would allow many more employers to hire visa workers instead of young Americans.
In 2013, Zuckerberg, the extremely wealthy owner of Facebook, joined with other wealthy investors to create the FWD.us lobby group as they tried to pass the 2013 “Gang of Eight” amnesty and population expansion bill. The bill was blocked by GOP legislators in the House.
