Mark Zuckerberg took to Facebook this afternoon to speak out about Trump's executive orders on immigration.

He also took the opportunity to applaud Trump's pledge to "work something out" for Dreamers, or immigrants who were illegally brought to the U.S. as kids. His organization, FWD.us, will work with the administration on this, he said. And he made a case that everyone benefits when "the best and brightest from around the world can live, work and contribute here."

Why Silicon Valley cares: Beyond personal reasons (Zuckerberg notes that his family and his wife's family immigrated from elsewhere), tech companies have real workforce issues to consider.

The U.S. has already celebrated Easter, graduations and so much more during the coronavirus pandemic, and now it can add July 4 to the list.

The state of play: Axios' Stef Kight writes public parades and fireworks displays around much of the country are being canceled to prevent mass gatherings where the virus could spread.
