Facebook, Apple, GM leaders urge Congress to protect 'Dreamers'

Emmett Howard | 12 January, 2018, 20:49

"It is critical that Congress act to pass legislation before January 19th", the executives wrote in the letter.

The companies called for immediate action to help workers who will lose the protection of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in March. Economists estimate that a failure to act could cost the economy $215 billion in GDP, the executives' letter added.

Although DACA isn't set to expire until March 5, the group requested in the letter that lawmakers pass legislation by January 19, which is the deadline for Congress to pass a bill for government funding to avoid a shutdown, The Hill reports.

We have seen time and again that the overwhelming majority of the American public of all political backgrounds agrees that we should protect Dreamers from deportation.

On Tuesday, a judge temporarily blocked the Trump administration from ending DACA, but the Department of Justice plans to appeal.

The Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act would serve as a permanent solution for those who now qualify for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), including the 42,000 DACA recipients in NY whose status is at risk. The time is now to fight back to protect the values of fairness, equality, and inclusion in our society, for immigrants and for all who live in our country.

"It just shows everyone how broken and unfair our Court System is when the opposing side in a case (such as DACA) always runs to the 9th Circuit and nearly always wins before being reversed by higher courts", Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.

"We write to urge Congress to act immediately and pass a permanent bipartisan legislative solution to enable Dreamers who are now living, working, and contributing to our communities to continue doing so", the executives wrote in the letter.

"I do not favor punishing children, most of whom are now adults, for the actions of their parents". The Trump administration revoked the DACA program in September, but delayed its cancellation by six months so Congress would have time to figure out what to do with the 800,000 people protected under DACA.
