Posted on 07/11/2020 9:05:40 PM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
Leaders of some of the countrys biggest companies signed a letter Saturday urging President Trump not to make a new attempt at revoking the Obama-era DACA deportation amnesty, saying it would be a significant disruption to lose those employees during the coronavirus recovery.
The companies, which range from Apple and Amazon to Target and General Motors, said the illegal immigrant Dreamers who are able to work due to the DACA program have been critical members of our workforce, industries and communities for years now.
This is no time to disrupt the economic recovery of our companies and communities, nor time to jeopardize the health and safety of these vulnerable individuals, wrote the leaders, who call themselves the Coalition for the American Dream. We ask that you leave DACA in place and refrain from taking any additional administrative actions that would negatively impact the DACA program.
As of March, more than 640,000 Dreamers were protected by the DACA program, which prevents deportation and grants work permits and some taxpayer benefits.
The Trump administration in 2017 announced a phaseout of the program, but that was put on hold by the courts, and last month the Supreme Court ruled the phaseout illegal, saying the administration cut too many corners.
But the court said the administration does have the power to end DACA, as long as it does it properly.
On Friday, Mr. Trump and the White House sent mixed signals about whats in store.

Build the Wall!
Deport them ALL!
The wall only works if they’re on the other side.
...saying it would be a significant disruption to lose those employees during the coronavirus recovery.
Uh, you dont need any illegals and too many are not working, anyway.
Hiring people who are illegally in the country is against the law. If you have to break the law to do business you shouldn’t be in business.
I thought he already caved to this? Why the remarks now?
With a current unemployment rate of 11.1% there is no shortage of American Citizens to replace the Illegals. But, they know this.
And, they do not care at all about this fact. Their Executive Management is made up of WOKE Leftists who care far more about Illegals than American Citizens who are out of work.
If they could get away with it they would gladly fire every American and replace us all with Illegals. In a heartbeat.
They are far more pliable. And, will work for whatever little wage they are offered.
uhhh...you are laughing at conservatives as you censor them willy nilly daily...let’s #cancelDACA & keep Americans in high-paying jobs
Just do it! They’re illegal dregs on society. Help American citizens that came here the legal way. DACA are line cutters.
Are these the same ones who support the violent looters, arsonist and vandals?
Shup, business leaders. Nobody aksed you.
“Business leaders” can ESAD!
That’s right... Who cares what any special interest group bleats. Build your product, sell your product, take care of your customers, quit pontificating, and you’ll be fine. You will adapt. If you can’t, maybe you are selling buggy whips. The take away is, be humble, you are nowhere near as important as you believe.
Nope, this nation cant run without illegal aliens.
If this were Obama, these companies would have never-ending
tax audits, and their CEOs getting the full-court Flynn
Where’s the list of these companies?
I’m sure some where, some time one of their employees wore an offensive halloween costume and the world demands that they be destroyed.
yeah because they’ve allowed these companies to not employ americans
build the wall
but you gotta get the ones here on the other side of it for it to work
How many DACA employees do these companies have? Maybe a dozen or two per company, at most. The notion that it would have a significant impact is not believable.
There will always be a cry from big business to have the U.S. taxpayer fund their profit margins.....just follow the money.
BS! I’ve been out of work for months and I am desperately looking for work. I guarantee you that one of these DACA kids has taken a position that I’m qualified for, so shut it down!
Greedy pigs / want to keep exploiting cheap illegal alien labor instead of hiring Americans who need the jobs.
