In 2010, Jobs told President Obama "that Silicon Valley is mystified by a policy that instead educates foreigner engineers at top U.S. universities, then sends them home immediately," reports The Wall Street Journal. But Jobs became frustrated with the president, who told Jobs that immigration reform would have to wait.

Jobs' widow, Laurene Powell Jobs, continues his campaign for immigration reform.

Earlier this year, she launched TheDreamIsNow.org, an online petition supporting the Dream Act, which would grant a path to citizenship to undocumented youth.
