Apple, Google, Microsoft vow to fight for employees hit

HOUSTON6/9/17:: US tech giants, including Apple, Google and Microsoft, have pledged to stand by their employees after the Trump administration scrapped an amnesty programme that granted work permits to immigrants who arrived in the country illegally as children.

 

US President Donald Trump on Tuesday scrapped an Obama-era programme known as Deferred Action for Children Arrival (DACA), a move likely to impact 8 lakh undocumented workers including more than 7,000 Indian-Americans.

 

Microsoft and Apple are offering the most full-throated defence of “Dreamers” — undocumented individuals who have been in the US since they were young and registered with the federal government to get work permits.

 

Apple CEO Tim Cook condemned the Trump administration’s decision and pledged in a note to employees to offer any employees affected by the change the “support they need, including the advice of immigration experts.”
