Starbucks joins in on fight against Trump’s DACA repeal
Following Trump’s repeal of the Deferred Action for Children Arrivals program, which permits undocumented immigrants who come to the US as children to work and attend schoollegally, major US employers are speaking out.
One of the recent companies to join the protest is coffee giant Starbucks.
Starbucks joined the likes of Amazon and Microsoft in supporting the legal action, which yesterday issued a letter to its US employees to address the impending DACA repeal.
“Starbucks will continue to stand with the hundreds of thousands of Dreamers impacted by yesterday’s announcement, including those we are proud to call Starbucks partners,” the letter reads in part.
“These young people are in America through no fault of their own. They are contributing to their community and to the economy — this is their home.”
“Forcing productive members of our community to leave is unacceptable,” the letter attributed to CEO Kevin Johnson and chief partner officer Lucy Helm continues. “We urge lawmakers to come together and pass legislation that keeps our Dreamers home.”
