"We need to keep this country safe, but we should do that by focusing on people who actually pose a threat," Zuckerberg wrote in a post on his Facebook page. "Expanding the focus of law enforcement beyond people who are real threats would make all Americans less safe by diverting resources, while millions of undocumented folks who don't pose a threat will live in fear of deportation."
Some of Trump's executive orders would directly curtail the number of immigrants and refugees in the U.S. His directive to build a wall along the U.S.- Mexico border and limit funding to U.S. cities that protect illegal immigrants has bristled relations with Mexico. On Thursday, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto canceled a meeting with Trump over planned executive actions related to immigration.
On Friday,Trump signed an executive order for "extreme vetting" of visa seekers from terror-stricken countries.
Zuckerberg said the issue was "personal," as he and his wife, Priscilla Chan, come from a family of immigrants and refugees, respectively. Had his wife's family not been allowed in the U.S., her family would not be alive today, he added.
The Facebook executive did say he was glad Trump was open to allowing "Dreamers" to stay, the term for immigrants who were brought to the U.S. at a young age by their parents.
"We are a nation of immigrants, and we all benefit when the best and brightest from around the world can live, work and contribute here," Zuckerberg wrote. "I hope we find the courage and compassion to bring people together and make this world a better place for everyone."
