The key players who could bring immigration reform to the front line right now are the high tech moguls. Money moves mountains.
The problem is that their agenda focuses on foreign talent and not on the millions of undocumented immigrants who do not work on high tech. Yet, these millions of so called unskilled workers do move mountains at a fundamental level of the US economy, and one may argue that it all depends on how the word “skill” is defined.
Comprehensive Immigration Reform must include the interests of both foreign talent and other workers, high tech or not.
If Mark Zuckerberg and other high tech moguls can fully assimilate this, they will set a precedent, moving forward and setting free the elephant in the room in a way that politicians and immigrant rights groups have not been able to, trapped in their own games.
