At Microsoft, 300 Workers Protest ICE Contract, Threaten To Resign
- Jun 25, 2018-
The ongoing, controversial debate over the separation of immigrant children from their parents at the Southern border has spilled into the corporate world: At Microsoft, 300 employees are threatening to resign, unless the tech giant ends its contract with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.
The furor began on Monday, after the Trump administration began forcibly separating and detaining children from their parents who had entered the U.S. illegally. Although he signed on Thursday an executive order that purports to end the policy by keeping families together when they’re detained, there are reportedly still hundreds of children separated from their parents.
