Zuckerberg Advocacy Group Criticizes "Shocking Extremism" in Immigration Debate

FWD.us is working on getting Republicans on board with immigration reform

FWD.us, an advocacy group for immigration reform launched by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, is ratcheting up the fight.

The group is funding national ad campaigns to sell immigration reform to Republican voters. And now, it's calling out the powerful movement opposing immigration reform—accusing it of  "shocking extremism" parading as conservatism.

"While some anti-immigrant voices falsely claiming to speak for conservatives may raise concern over the draft principles, they do not represent the majority of the Republican Party: polls have consistently shown that GOP primary voters support fixing our broken immigration system," FWD.us wrote in a memo sent to every member of Congress with a section titled, "The Shocking Extremism Behind Anti-Immigrant Groups."
