Microsoft President To Trump: To Deport A DREAMer, You’ll Have To Go Through Us

America’s business leaders are speaking out against President Trump’s move to end DACA.

The president of Microsoft, Brad Smith, took a notable stand. He said not only will his company lobby for a legislative solution but also that Microsoft is calling on Congress to make immigration the top priority, before tax reform. And he is calling on other business leaders to follow suit.

“There is nothing that we will be pushing on more strongly for Congress to act on,” Smith said in an interview with NPR. “We put a stake in the ground. We care about a tax reform bill. The entire business community cares about a tax reform. And yet it is very clear today a tax reform bill needs to be set aside until the DREAMers are taken care of. They have a deadline that expires in six months. Tax reform can wait.”

Smith also said if the government moves to deport DREAMers who are Microsoft employees, “it’s going to have to go through us to get that person.”
