    Major U.S. Retailers Call For DACA Protections

    Major U.S. retailers call for DACA protections





    BY JILL CUENI-COHEN / SEPTEMBER 20, 2017 /






    Nearly 800 companies, including Walmart Stores, Target, and PepsiCo, sent a letter to Congress on Wednesday asking them to pass legislation to permanently protect the roughly 800,000 illegal immigrants known as “Dreamers” from deportation, according to FWD.us.


    According to their website, FWD.us was “founded by leaders in the technology community to give our values a voice in American politics,” including Facebook Inc. Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg. The organization says its goal is to mobilize the tech community “to promote policies that keep the U.S. competitive in a global economy, starting with fixing our broken immigration system and criminal justice reform.”

    Prior to this, a much smaller group of tech companies sent a similar letter in August, before President Donald Trump said he would end the program. The new letter reflects Trump’s decision and asks for a permanent solution to let DACA recipients remain in the United States. Both letters were spearheaded by FWD.us.

    Trump said that DACA immigrants who have work permits that expire before March can apply to renew them for another two years, if they do so before Oct. 5.


    The initial letter was signed by major technology companies, including Apple, Microsoft, Amazon.com and Alphabet’s Google. But over the course of several days, more companies from a variety of industries, such as media firm Viacom and private equity firm TPG, signed on. The latest letter adds companies like biotech firm Becton, Dickinson and Co, according to a copy of the letter and signatures viewed by Reuters.

    “That you see business leaders from every major sector of the economy come out and ask Congress to pass a permanent fix for DACA right away shows that this is a bipartisan issue that has strong support,” Todd Schulte, president of FWD.us, told Reuters.
    The new letter calls on Congress to “immediately pass the bipartisan DREAM Act – or similar legislation – that gives Dreamers the permanent legislative solution they deserve.”

    The DREAM Act, first introduced in Congress in 2001, would provide Dreamers with a way to become U.S. citizens after first becoming permanent residents. DACA, a set of executive actions introduced by President Barack Obama in 2012, didn’t include a pathway to citizenship, which would require an act of Congress.

    Most conservatives object to offering citizenship to DACA recipients.

    Activists, including United We Dream, are encouraging DACA recipients and companies they work for to publicly discuss their situation.

    Enrique Ramirez, for instance, was brought to the United States from Mexico when he was two years old. He graduated from Harvard University and is now attending law school at the University of Texas at Austin. “There’s been so much money invested in me by this country, wouldn’t even a conservative person want me to contribute to my community here?” Ramirez said.

    DACA shields recipients from deportation and allows them to work and attend school legally if certain requirements are met.

    In a television interview on Tuesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook said he was “encouraged” that leading Democrats and Republican President Trump have said they are near a deal on DACA legislation. Apple has said it employs approximately 250 DACA beneficiaries.

    “We think it’s essential that we not only let them stay in this country but welcome them,” Cook said of DACA recipients. “I am encouraged that Congress will pass a law to make this permanent.”

    Other tech companies are looking to pair with local groups to help DACA recipients. Ride-hailing firm Uber Technologies said it is holding a series of town-hall meetings in 10 cities to answer drivers’ questions about DACA changes, and that it plans to donate $500,000 to local groups that can help drivers with issues like paperwork and application fees.

    You shut them down. Teach them a lesson they will never forget. If they are so stupid as to not know where their bread is buttered and who pays for it, it's time they learn that lesson the hard way.

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    IMO, Walmart was one of the worst offenders for hiring illegals until they got busted for it. Walmart imports everything cheap from China and keeps a huge number of it's associates on as part time employees, of course they want more cheap labor.

    Walmart doesn't pay their bills, but it sell a lot of stuff to illegals, just try to go to one on a weekend anywhere if you want to see the anchor family on display.
