“Is Not Something That We Support”: Tim Cook Sends a Letter to Its Employees on The Migratory Measures Trump

They have not gone or ten days since the Trump Administration has taken power in the United States and the population is already immersed in protests. The uproar that resulted the Executive order of deportations of the new President Donald Trump It has been such that up to the technological world has spoken out on the matter.

And how not, Tim Cook has also made clear the opinion of Apple. The CEO of the company has sent a letter to all employees in which says that Apple does not support these migratory measures and that it has already sent a statement to the White House to explain the negative impact that all of this can lead.

Here’s a translation free Charter into Spanish:


In the talks I have had with government officials in Washington this week I have made it clear that Apple believes deeply in the importance of immigration, both for the future of the company and of our nation. Apple would not exist without immigration, and let alone the innovation that produces.

I have heard from many of you the deep concern that you have about the latest executive order shipped yesterday, restricting immigration from seven mostly Muslim countries. I share your concern. It is not a measure that we support.

There are Apple employees directly affected by the order. Our Department of human resources, safety and legal are in contact with them, and Apple is going to do everything possible to support them. We are providing resources on the internal website of the company for all of you who have questions or concerns about measures on immigration policy. And we have contacted the White House to explain the negative effects caused by this in our employees and our company.

As I have said many times, the diversity strengthens our team. And if there is anything I know about the people who work at Apple is that we have much empathy and support between the two. This is more important than ever and will not weaken a bit. I know that I can count on you to make everyone at Apple feel welcome, respected, and valued.

Apple is an open company. Open to everyone, no matter where come, the language you speak, the people that are in love or the God He worships. Our employees represent the best talent in the world, and our team spans all corners of the planet.

In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, “we have come on different ships, but we are now all in the same”.

Executives of other companies have also spoken contrary to the orders of Trump: Reed Hastings, CEO, Netflix, has called on “protecting American values”. Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, says that “it is concerned”. At Engadget, we have all statements compiled in a list. Even seen to Sergei Brin, co-founder of Google, protesting at the San Francisco Airport.

Even John Gruber, from Daring Fireball, posted a message in this regard. Irritated, he says that we should have taken all the promises of Donald Trump literally from the beginning. And now the world will pay the price of not having done.

Whether we like it or not, it seems that the current technology will be quite mixed with the political news during the era of Trump.
