Elon Musk and David Sacks leaves Mark Zuckerberg's Political Advocacy Group

The controversial political advocacy group of Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg is losing support. The two prominent investors of Silicon Valley Elon Musk and David Sacks are backing up from the immigration reform adovacy group . They are now departing from FWD.us.

Elon Musk is multi billionaire investor. He is founder of Tesla electric car company named Tesla Motors, along with that also acting as Chief Executive of SpaceX (A Rocket Manufacturing Company). Elon is also chairman of Solar City (a solar energy project company). The other famous share holder and support was David Sacks who is CEO and founder of Yammer (A Social Networking Company).

FWD stands for Forward USA. It is based to promote the oil and gas pipeline projects and to support the Republican motive.The key motive of new campaign by Silicon Valley giants is to push the immigration policy and reforms in process in American senate. The advertisement policy of organization is through television ads of more than $10 million which are paused in more than three states. FWD is praising senators and supporting the XL pipeline project also.

The ads were discontinued due to rage of liberal groups and green environmental organizations. In line of the protest, they also removed their ads from Social Media Company Facebook platform.The other main investors of FWD group are founder of Microsoft Bill Gates, Chairman of Google Eric Schmidt. The effort has raised more than $40 million to support the cause. The technology geeks are pushing the effort without any care of their actions.

According to AllThingsD, Elon Musk still supports the cause of FWD and Mark but contradicts with acting pattern. He is in favor of Immigration reforms. But the other things that Mark is pushing are against his policy like Oil and Gas Pipeline.The leader person and chairman of FWD.US is Facebook Founder Mark. He is assisted by co-founder Jim Breyer who is also a famous investor in Silicon Valley. He supports the unlawful tactics in favor of the organization and said that these are important to push the effort ahead along with forwarding America to new horizons.

FWD.US’s spokesperson Kate Hansen confirmed the withdrawal of support from the above mentioned billionaires but declined to further comment on it.
