Tech forms new group to lobby for 'Dreamers'

Tech forms new group to lobby for 'Dreamers'”

The coalition will consist of numerous biggest names in the tech industry, including Google Inc., Microsoft Corp., Facebook Inc., Intel Corp. and Uber Technologies Inc.

This Obama-era executive action allowed "Dreamers", undocumented immigrants who arrived as minors, to register with the government and legally study or work without fear of deportation. According to Reuters, some of the companies have not yet confirmed their part in the coalition, though Uber and Intel both did.

"If we are unable to protect these dreamers, we will be shutting the door to an entire generation of individuals who seek to contribute their best to America", the organizations said in the letter. Trump's decision to permit the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to expire this March brought on the drive for this legislation.

Around 800 companies signed a letter to Congress after Trump's decision in September, requesting legislation to protect the Dreamers.

According to documents obtained by Reuters, the coalition will be made up of numerous same companies that signed a letter asking Congress to protect Dreamers.

President Donald Trump pledged to reinforce the immigration policies and build a wall along Mexico during his campaign. The group's signup form said that 72% of the top 25 Fortune 500 companies employ those protected by DACA.

We may see action come December, when Congress is required to pass a spending bill keeping the USA government open.

Action may come in December, when Congress must pass a spending bill to keep the USA government open.

Todd Schulte, president of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg-founded immigration group FWD.us, seems to like their chances. Democrats have considered insisting on help for the Dreamers as their price for providing votes that may be required to prevent a government shutdown. He declined to comment on the new coalition. He concluded, "You will see this continue to escalate until the end of the year".
