As the son of an immigrant, with business partners who are immigrants, and a wife who is an immigrant; I hold a deep respect for the immigrants who have made amazing contributions in this country - from enriching local economy to scientific and technological breakthroughs. I do not appreciate any attacks or additional roadblocks for the people I spend my life with.
Put simply, it seems that Donald Trump does not like immigrants, here is a list of actions taken that have made life more difficult for immigrants in America under the Trump administration:
1. His attempt to ban people
from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia, and Libya in 2017.
2. His successful plan to ban new green card applications
and H1B visas since May of 2020.
3. His administration's negligence in point 2 above leading to a temporary furlough of 65% of USCIS workers
Had these actions been taken in the past, Steve Jobs' father may not have been able to immigrate to the U.S., my wife, Nathali, my grandparents, my mother or even one of my best friends, Manuel, would not be able to get a green card; Uber, CloudFlare, and other great tech companies would not have been founded (each had at least one founder who was here on an H1B visa).
Because these happened today, my wife's green card process has been delayed and who knows how many amazing scientists
and technologists we are turning away because of these short-sighted policies.
