Did you think Zuckerberg's amnesty push was about Hispanics from South America? Au contrar.
Mark Zuckerberg wants to double or even triple the number of H1-B visas and other guest-worker permits - and guess what the amnesty bill will have in it?
In fact all tech CEOs are after engineers from the only place on Earth minting them at a pace barely keeping up with demand - Japan, China, Taiwan and India. And those engineers are only as good as the H1-B visa they must have before they can plant their rears behind a screen at Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Oracle or any other Silicon Valley company.
Don't believe it? How about this from a report compiled by the San Jose Mercury News:
...the combined work force of the top 10 largest companies—including Hewlett-Packard, Intel, Cisco Systems, eBay and AMD—shows the workforce grew by 16% between 1999 and 2005, the nearly non existent number of black workers dropped by 16% and Hispanic workers declined by 11%. By 2005, just 2,200 of the 30,000 valley based workers are black or Hispanic. The share of women also declined to 33%.
In other words, the tech industry is getting younger, whiter, and more male'd. Surprise! After all the game is about profits - serious coin. And the Chinese don't do affirmative action or gender preferences, so why would Silicon Valley indulge in it? Well, if they wanna compete, they won't - and aren't.
