Real Time Experts Poll - Microsoft and Daca

Many companies have come out against President Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Microsoft has perhaps taken the strongest stand. A few examples of its actions over the past week:

  • It signed an open letter to Trump in support of DACA (along with 400 other companies)
  • Microsoft President Brad Smith said Congress “should adopt legislation on DACA before it tries to adopt a tax reform bill. This is the only way, given the number of legislative days Congress has scheduled over the next six months, we realistically can expect Congress to complete DACA legislation in time” *Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella posted a message in which he said that supporting DACA “is core to who we are at Microsoft and I believe it is core to what America is.”
  • The company vowed, “If Dreamers who are our employees are in court, we will be by their side.”
