Fortune 500 companies launch ad urging Congress to act on relief for DACA recipients by year's end
A coalition of numerous Fortune 500 companies are again adding their voices to the urgent call demanding Congress act on permanent protections for young undocumented immigrants by the end of this year.
The popular and successful Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program continues to be dismantled under GOP-pushed litigation, and its outlook is grim. Apple, Microsoft, and Google are among the businesses that have now taken out a full-page ad in the Wall Street Journal, Dallas Morning News, and Charlotte Observer urging congressional leaders to act before the current session ends. They write our economy will “face another crisis” if hundreds of thousands of program beneficiaries and their families lose critical protections.The companies and businesses say that since DACA’s implementation by the Obama administration a decade ago, program beneficiaries “have built successful careers as teachers, small business owners, health care workers, and entrepreneurs across a host of industries. They are our friends, our neighbors, and our coworkers.”
