Uncertainty looms for 800,00 dreamers as Trump set to decide on DACA

The letter was signed by Apple’s Tim Cook, Google’s Sundar Pichai, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg. Also included were Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s Meg Whitman, Microsoft’s Satya Nadella and Netflix’s Reed Hastings among 350 other CEOs.

Tech investors and board members, including Berkshire Hathaway’s Warren Buffett and General Motors’ Mary Barra also put the pen to the paper.

Former US President Barack Obama signed an executive order in which established the program. Called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the program was established in 2012. The deadline for repealing the program is approaching after Labor day. President Trump has been uncertain about his stance on the matter. The executives hope that this open letter persuades the President to acknowledge the matter as time is running out.

The CEOs highlighted the fact that 800,000 dreamers are protected and could face the “immediate threat of deportation.” They also argued that the US economy could lose $460 billion and $25 billion in Social Security and Medicare tax contributions.

“We call on President Trump to preserve the DACA program. We call on Congress to pass the bipartisan DREAM Act or legislation that provides these young people raised in our country the permanent solution they deserve,” the letter says.

The FWD.us website also includes a letter addressed to politicians that people can sign and submit.

The CEO of Microsoft, Satya Nadella is also a member of Trump’s technology council. He wrote on LinkedIn that he sees the “direct contributions that talented employees from around the world bring to our company, our customers and to the broader economy.”

He also added, “It is core to who we are at Microsoft. I believe it is core to what America is.”
