Reed Hastings Condemns President Trump’s Executive Order on Immigration
Netflix CEO Reed Hastings presented his point against the executive order passed by President Trump to ban entry of people from seven Muslim-dominated countries. While Trump’s order has been challenged the court and has been stayed, CEOs of many technology companies have come forward to criticize the order. Talking about the immigration order, Hastings said, “Trump’s actions are hurting Netflix employees around the world, and are so un-American it pains us all.”
In his Facebook post, Hasting said, “Trump's actions are hurting Netflix employees around the world, and are so un-American it pains us all. Worse, these actions will make America less safe (through hatred and loss of allies) rather than more safe. A very sad week, and more to come with the lives of over 600,000 Dreamers here in a America under imminent threat. It is time to link arms together to protect American values of freedom and opportunity.”
Google CEO Sundar Pichai has also talked about the order passed by the U.S. President. Facebook, Microsoft and Uber also released statement condemning the order. The order has put a temporary ban on people coming from seven countries for 90 days to travel to the United States. The U.S. administration will figure out the best way to screen immigrants and President Trump said that there will be extreme vetting before people are allowed in the United States.
Thousands of protestors reached airports and many were also protesting on the street against executive orders passed by President Trump.
