Mark Zuckerberg's FWD.us political action group has added a few more tech heavy hitters to its membership roster.

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, Intuit CEO Brad Smith, and entrepreneur and investor Sean Parker have all signed on in support of the Facebook CEO's group aimed at reforming immigration, according to a report from AllThingsD.

We've contacted FWD.us and will update the report when we have more information.

Zuckerberg launched the group earlier this month through an editorial in the Washington Post. FWD.us has vowed to work with members of Congress from both parties, the administration, and state and local officials to change how the U.S. approaches immigration. It plans to use online and offline advocacy tools to build support for policy changes.
