Tech Giants Pledge To Fight Back Against Trump’s DACA Decision

Microsoft and Apple have threatened legal action against the Trump administration for its plans to rescind DACA, effectively placing 800,000 lives at risk.

Apple CEO Tim Cook also condemned the president’s action. In a company-wide email issued yesterday, Cook said he is “deeply dismayed that 800,000 Americans —including more than 250 of our Apple coworkers —may soon find themselves cast out of the only country they’ve ever called home.”

Cook pledged that Apple will offer any employees affected by the change the “support they need, including the advice of immigration experts.” He noted that he had spoken with several of the company’s DREAMers over the weekend and that some of them have no memory of their lives before they came to the United States.

Cook tweeted yesterday in support of Dreamers:

He also tweeted his support for DACA earlier this week.
