Mark Zuckerberg Facebook CEO criticises the order of Trump on immigration : Over the anti-immigration policies, the CEO of Facebook – Mark Zuckerberg took to his social network to criticise US President Donald Trump and his plans to build a wall along the border with Mexico.
Donald Trump, in his first week in the White House, signed executive orders for the border wall, withholding federal funding from sanctuary cities and blocking refugees from nations like Iran, Iraq, Libya and Syria.
On Friday, in a Facebook post, Zuckerberg said that Like many of you, I’m concerned about the impact of the recent executive orders signed by President Trump. We need to keep this country safe, but we should do that by focusing on people who actually pose a threat.
CEO of Facebook – Mark Zuckerberg criticised Trump’s actions by saying the US is a nation of immigrants. Recently, he cleared that he was not running for the top post.
He said that his great-grandparents came to the US from Germany, Austria and Poland, while wife Priscilla Chan’s parents were refugees from China and Vietnam.
He urged Trump to keep the US’ doors open to refugees. He said that had we turned away refugees a few decades ago, Priscilla’s family wouldn’t be here today.
But, Mark Zuckerberg also appreciated the announcement of Trump regarding finding a solution for 750,000 immigrants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals programme under the DREAM Act.
