Here Is the List of Top Companies Actively Against Trump’s Immigration Policy

 

It wouldn’t be a Donald Trump policy if there weren’t scads of liberals protesting against it. And this time, that even includes liberal companies.

According to Fox News, a number of major companies have spoken out against President Trump’s temporary pause in immigration and travel from seven countries with significant terrorism problems until more stringent vetting procedures can be established.

Facebook was probably the most prominent of the companies, although CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s statement was one of the milder ones we’ve heard.

 

“We should also keep our doors open to refugees and those who need help. That’s who we are,” he posted on (of course) his Facebook account.

Apple CEO Tim Cook also took a position against Trump’s executive order.

“I’ve heard from many of you who are deeply concerned about the executive order issued yesterday restricting immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries,” Cook wrote in an email to employees, according to Business Insider. “I share your concerns. It is not a policy we support.”

 

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, meanwhile, was less reserved. He called it “a very sad day” and branded Trump’s actions as “un-American.”

“Trump’s actions are hurting Netflix employees around the world, and are so un-American it pains us all,” he wrote on Facebook. “Worse, these actions will make America less safe (through hatred and loss of allies) rather than more safe.”

Curiously missing from his account was Hastings’ condemnation of President Obama when Obama quietly issued a similar six-month freeze on Iraqi refugees in 2011. Maybe Hastings accidentally deleted it or something.

Then there was Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, who took the latte for most florid yet evidence-free rant in the liberal business sweepstakes. In a way too-long-to-read letter allegedly aimed at Starbucks partners (and more readily perused by lazy journalists who needed a story and like copy-pasting large chunks of text), Schultz announced that — among other things — his company would be hiring 10,000 refugees

“There are more than 65 million citizens of the world recognized as refugees by the United Nations, and we are developing plans to hire 10,000 of them over five years in the 75 countries around the world where Starbucks does business,” Schultz announced in the rambling letter, which also voiced support for Obamacare and chastised Trump for trying to enforce immigration laws.

The 10,000 refugees number sounds great until you realize that Starbucks operates in 75 countries, all with vastly different labor laws pertaining to immigrants and refugees. Let’s also point out that Starbucks has 25,000 outlets worldwide, which works out to one refugee for every 2.5 stores, not even counting roles in corporate or distribution. In other words, the most demanding part of Schultz’s publicity-grabbing five-year plan might be the stretch he endured to pat himself on the back — and that’s assuming he even follows through with it.

Not to be outdone, AirBnb CEO Brian Chesky offered free housing to refugees.

We’ll see how that one works out.

Besides Facebook, Apple, Netflix, Starbucks and AirBnb, other companies and CEOs who have taken stands against Trump’s immigration freeze include Tesla’s Elon Musk, Google parent company Alphabet, Uber, Nike, Lyft and Twitter.

They, of course, have their First Amendment right to free speech. You also have your First Amendment right to associate with these companies or not. If you feel strongly enough about this, you know what to do.

Please like and share on Facebook and Twitter with your thoughts on these companies’ statements.
