Tim Cook and other CEOs have come together to ask Congress to rectify your decision to outlaw the DACA project. They want the possibility of granting citizenship to be approved for the so-called “dreamers.” A project in which Tim Cook has been involved since its inception. It has supported, subsidized (employing 250 of these immigrants) and defended it before the Trump administration that finally managed to declare it illegal.
More than 90 CEOs, including Apple’s Tim Cook, are urging Congress to pass a law that provides a path to citizenship for young immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children. In the letter signed by Tim Cook of Apple, Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, Sundar Pichai of Google, Andy Jassy of Amazon, Brad Smith of Microsoft and many others, the CEOs write in connection with the recent ruling of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas regarding to the program Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
The district court ruling breaks the illusion and future of the so-called dreamers al the program was declared illegal. Although for those who are already on American soil, under the auspices of the DACA project there are not too many negative consequences, they are not allowed to work but remain in the country. Yes there are for all those who wanted to find a better future under that banner.
The CEOs of these large companies are asking Congress to pass new legislation. That it can grant citizenship to all those who are already in the country. They want the project to be restored, but they have to go step by step. They want the first, to ensure a way for those on American soil to be eligible to become citizens. They argue for this that it is not only the right thing to do, but that it is a great economic benefit for the United States.
The signatories of the letter hope that with the new government things will change. Among other words, those mentioned by current President Joe Biden are cited: “These young people are part of the fabric of our nation and are vital to our future.”
