US firms have offered legal protection to DACA workers who are their employees even as Trump abolished the immigrant amnesty DACA program. The US firms have also said that they have no plans to terminate the services of the employees who are covered by the DACA program and would extend legal protection to them.
The President and Chief Legal Officer of Microsoft Brad Smith said that his firm is committed to the 39 employees who are DACA workers and Microsoft would strongly protect their legal rights. In the eventuality wherein US Congress fails to deliver, the US firms have said that they will appropriately exercise their legal privileges to safeguard their employees who are DACA workers.
Mr. Smith said that if the US administration decides to deport these workers, the firm would hire a legal counsel and defend them. It will also be examined whether the company can opt for amicus brief and intervene directly in the case, added Brad Smith.
Tim Cook the CEO of Apple sent an e-mail to all the employees of his company following the decision by Trump to abolish DACA. He said that all the 250 DACA workers of Apple will be provided the services of immigration lawyers, as quoted by the NZ Herald Co NZ.
The CEO of Apple said that he had received several e-mails from these DACA program employees and a few of them had arrived at the US as 2-year kids. Being born in Mongolia, Kenya, Mexico, and Canada, they received education in US colleges. They are now working for Apple across 28 US States, elaborated Cook.
Cook said that he would like to assure that Apple will collaborate with US Congress members from both the parties. It would persuade for a bill that would offer lasting protection to all the DACA workers, added Cook.
