Tim Cook, Charles Koch urge action on ‘dreamers’

Dec. 14, 2017

Tim Cook, chief executive of Apple, and Charles Koch, chairman and chief executive of Koch Industries, have teamed up on the opinion page of The Washington Post to urge Congress to act on the dreamers—children brought into the country by undocumented immigrants.

“The holidays are upon us, and families across the United States are coming together to celebrate,” they write. “Yet for about 690,000 of our neighbors, colleagues and friends, this holiday season is marked by uncertainty and fear.”

They describe themselves as “…business leaders who sometimes differ on the issues of the day. Yet, on a question as straightforward as this one, we are firmly aligned.”

They continue, “Both of our companies are fortunate to have dreamers on our teams. We know from experience that the success of our businesses depends on having employees with diverse backgrounds and perspectives. It fuels creativity, broadens knowledge, and helps drive innovation. For our nation to maximize progress and prosperity, we need more, not fewer, talented people at the table.”

They urge Congress to act by year-end. You can read the complete article here.
