Dear President Trump,
from the country of birth, America was the land of opportunity – to welcome newcomers and give them the opportunity to build a family, careers and business in the United states. We are a nation of immigrants made stronger. As entrepreneurs and business leaders, our ability to grow our company and the creation of jobs depends on the contribution of immigrants from all walks of life.
We share your goal of ensuring that our immigration system meets modern safety requirements and keep our country safe. We are concerned that your recent executive orders will effect many visa holders, who are working hard here in the United States and contribute to the success of our country. In an global economy, it is imperative that we continue to attract the best and brightest from around the world. We welcome change your Administration made in the last few days how Homeland Security Department implement and executive order, and we are ready to assist predictability and without undue delay.
Compassion of our nation is a part of what makes it exceptional, and we are committed to help your administration to determine the approach for a though screening of the blanket suspension without hospitalization under the Affairs of the US Refugee Admissions Programs. While security procedures and inspection can and should always be subject to continuous evaluation and improvement, a blanket suspension is not the right approach.
In addition, we are prepared to identify ways to help achieve your goal of attracting clarity into the future 75,00,000 Dreamers in the country under the protection of the deferred action program Childhood Arrivals (DACA) for the road “that will make people happy and proud.” The removal of these protections ban update will complete the program effectively and eliminate the possibility for these dreamers to live and work without fear of deportation.
The business community shares your commitment to the growth of the American economy and expand job creation across the country. We employ thousand of Americans, and some of the talented people from abroad who are working together to help our companies to achieve success and expand our common work. As you reflect changes in the complex and interrelated immigration policy of the country, whether it’s business or employment based visas, refugees or DACA, we hope that you will use us as a resource to achieve success and expand our common work. As you reflect changes in the complex and interrelated immigration policies that support the work of American companies and reflects the US values.
The companies are also considering to file a lawsuits against the order of Trump’s ban, which might actually happened, if the letter is unable to make any influence.
