Hundreds of Business Leaders Urge Trump to Protect Dreamers

Hundreds of executives from across the country are calling on President Trump to leave the Deferred Action for Childhood Action (DACA) program in place. The President is considering ending the program, which protects nearly 800,000 Dreamers from deportation. By registering with the federal government, these individuals, who are undocumented and were brought here as children, are able to legally work, study, and participate in their communities.

The business leaders, including the co-founders of Lyft and CEOs of Facebook, Microsoft, MWWPR, PayPal, signed the open letter to President Trump organized by Business Forward, FWD.us, and several other organizations. A full list of signatories from Business Forward is below. You can also see an expanded list of executives here

DACA recipeints are key of our region's economic growth and future job creation,” said Paola Avila, Vice President of the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, in signing the letter. “San Diego's immigrant population also provides a powerful economic impact in terms of spending power (approximately $16 billion annually) and taxes paid ($6 billion). In order to ensure an increase in GDP, we must grow not diminish our immigrant population.”

That economic growth is not limited to San Diego. Economists from liberal and conservative organizations alike agree that ending the DACA program would cost the U.S. economy hundreds of billions of dollars. If President Trump ends the program, nearly 800,000 people would lose their ability to work in the country. Companies will then need to spend time, money, and lost productivity to rehire and train for their lost employees.

August 31, 2017

To: President Donald J. Trump

CC: Speaker Paul Ryan; Leader Nancy Pelosi; Leader Mitch McConnell; and Leader Charles E. Schumer

As entrepreneurs and business leaders, we are concerned about new developments in immigration policy that threaten the future of young undocumented immigrants brought to America as children. 

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which allows nearly 800,000 Dreamers the basic opportunity to work and study without the threat of deportation, is in jeopardy. All DACA recipients grew up in America, registered with our government, submitted to extensive background checks, and are diligently giving back to our communities and paying income taxes. More than 97 percent are in school or in the workforce, 5 percent started their own business, 65 percent have purchased a vehicle, and 16 percent have purchased their first home. At least 72 percent of the top 25 Fortune 500 companies count DACA recipients among their employees. 

Unless we act now to preserve the DACA program, all 780,000 hardworking young people will lose their ability to work legally in this country, and every one of them will be at immediate risk of deportation. Our economy would lose $460.3 billion from the national GDP and $24.6 billion in Social Security and Medicare tax contributions.

Dreamers are vital to the future of our companies and our economy. With them, we grow and create jobs. They are part of why we will continue to have a global competitive advantage.

We call on President Trump to preserve the DACA program. We call on Congress to pass the bipartisan DREAM Act or legislation that provides these young people raised in our country the permanent solution they deserve.
