The Trump Administration chose to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) yesterday. The program gives temporary legal immigration status to children who were brought to America illegally, and its end has been met with much resistance. Tim Cook of Apple, Sundar Pichai of Google and Brad Smith of Microsoft are amongst those who have spoken out in defense of DACA, and have offered their assistance the families affected. You can read Tim Cook and Sundar Pichai's statements below, and can view Brad Smith's on the Microsoft blog.
#Dreamers contribute to our companies and our communities just as much as you and I. Apple will fight for them to be treated as equals.

Dreamers are our neighbors, our friends and our co-workers. This is their home. Congress needs to act now to #DefendDACA. #WithDreamers
