  • Laurene Powell Jobs to Promote Immigration Reform in an Interview with Rock Center


    Laurene Powell Jobs, Steve Job’s widow, will be speaking out on behalf of young undocumented immigrants during in an interview with Rock Center’s Brian Williams. The NBC show will be the first major outlet Powell Jobs has spoken to since the passing of her husband according to Cult of Mac.

    NBC posted a clip from the upcoming Rock Center segment where Powell states the following:

    So I started getting more and more active around immigration reform because this was such a waste of lives, such a waste of potential, such a waste for our country not to have the human capital that we developed, geared towards improving our entire society.

    And so we need all of these brains. We need all that energy. And indeed, there are estimates that integrating dreamers into our economy will give a boost of over $300 billion. So it’s an expansive act. There’s not zero sum here.
    Although the interview with the Rock Center may be her first primetime appearance, Powell Jobs has been an active advocate for quite some time. She was featured in Yahoo’s news blog The Lookout previously when her website dedicated to promoting “Dream Act” immigration reform went live. She’s been highly active in furthering her philanthropy causes and was even invited to attend the 2012 State of the Union Address as a guest of First Lady Michelle Obama.

    Those of you who are interested in watching the full interview can do so Friday night at 10:00pm EST/9:00pm CST.

      Wow what a compassionate and smart woman.Instead of trying to figure out what her real motive is why not try to see the value an undocumented would be to this country.Whether you like it or not there will be a comprehensive immigration law passed.Read the news and quit trying to read minds!!

      You misunderstood me I'm hoping for a law to pass I do agree I was once undocumented but most of the people not all but most of the politicians and powerful people do things either for more power, to be elected for a political purpose or money

      You mean the value of us having to learn Spanish because after illegally living here for years, most still do not learn English?

      No one is asking you to speak Spanish or any other language,but you are the lesser for it if you don't.This country has grown globally, it is to your benefit to learn a different language in order to compete.I am a second generation Mexican who is bi-lingual, as are most of my American born Mexican friends we have no problem speaking English.If you have been reading the immigration debate, that is one of the provisions that will be instituted if that becomes law.As one example i have a friend who is Irish American and speaks Japanese.got a great job in Japan translating for a scientific company.The problem is Anglos do not want to or, have patience to talk to some one of a different color.Try it some time the world will be better for it.America is a land of immigrants,we all fit into that boat.

      If you wish to be prejudice against Anglos, that is your choice. I am referring to someone's respect for the country they are living in. If I where to move to France, I would certainly learn French to become a more productive and valued member of that society. Employers are now asking for bilingual speakers for positions that normally would not require it, due to people not learning the dominant or the official language of the country and/or state.

      And those hard working people will be left out in the cold while people who are here illegally cut the immigration lines and take their place. That sure is fair.

      I love that woman, she just see what you can't see. It's not about racism like some people comment here, is about the future, is about the economy of our country, Is about the work that those people are able to do, that we don't want to do, and later we say they are taking our jobs. They know what work is, they valued that more than us, they take a brake every 5 hours of work, when we take one every 30 minutes. More work, more productive, more money for our country. That's what it is about made it simple.

      No one is taking anyone's place there's cake for everyone, like I said firts do some research, inform your self an then
      You can judge who's fault is that theres no jobs for everyone (Walmart, nike, etc...
      Big corporations rule the world and control the system, Nike make the T-shirts in Indonesia for less than half the price of what you pay in USA while people over there its working hard for some cent a day and we pay about 40 dollars for a stupid shirt that should be make here in the USA and sold at a fair price, but no "lets take advantage of the rest of the world and our own people as long as we can and as long as our country keeps leading and keep them happy with iPhones, big led screens new cars etc.. that is fair.

      So "there is cake for everyone", but "there's no jobs for everyone". Huh? And all those people waiting to come here legally are all a figment of our imagination, because there are actually no lines...

      Exactly. Spanish is quickly becoming a scond language for the country. I refuse to accept "english" as a primary language here anymore.

      The Sioux were here before the Spanish. Does Rosetta Stone have anything for Sioux?

      OK, now that one is ridiculous. As of 2009, the percent of language spoken by people in the U. S.:

      English 80%
      Spanish 12.4%
