Big US Companies Urge Congress to Protect Young Immigrants

More than 100 large American companies have joined forces to urge Congress to protect immigrants brought to America illegally while still a child. They signed an open letter of full-page advertising on a major newspaper on Thursday.

The companies called for immediate action to help workers who would lose protection from government programs, called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, abbreviated DACA , March.

Google's chief executive, Amazon, Facebook and Apple – known as GAFA – alongside IBM, Microsoft, Coca-Cola, General Motors, AT & T, Marriott, Hilton and dozens of other companies, signed a letter calling for protection for those covered by the program, called Dreamers.

Last September, President Donald Trump canceled the program, but gave it six months. That is, the people covered by the DACA or Dreamers program will be deported starting in March.

The letter voiced concerns by analysts and businessmen who said the economy would lose $ 215 billion in GDP if 800 thousand Dreamers quit their jobs, filling vacant position.

An American judge this week ordered the federal government to restore the DACA while awaiting justification for plans to cancel the program. It will allow Dreamers to apply to update their status in the program imposed by President Barack Obama since 2012, unless canceled by a higher court.

The immigration advocacy group noted that Dreamers is eligible and has undergone rigorous background checks , and do not receive government financial aid, but pay taxes because their status allows them to work legally. [ka/ii]
