Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, whose company has faced criticism for privacy-protection issues, said the National Security Agency's collection of phone data should not have been concealed.

"I think the government really blew it on this one, and I honestly think that they're continuing to blow it in some ways, and I hope that they become more transparent," the 29-year-old said Sunday on ABC's "This Week."

Zuckerberg also said that a path to citizenship should be implemented for the benefit of the future of the country, calling immigration reform "one of the biggest civil-rights issues of our time,"

"The future of our economy is a knowledge economy, and that means that getting the most talented people into this country is the most important thing that we can do to make sure that the companies of tomorrow are founded here," said Zuckerberg, one of the organizers of FWD.us, an immigration-reform advocacy group. "We definitely should make it so that there's a path for them to come into this country legally."
