Mark Zuckerberg denounced a decree Trump on refugees
The founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg has acted with criticism of the decree of the President of the United States Donald Trump about refugees. The statement he published on his page in the social network.
"My great grandparents came from Germany, Austria and Poland. Priscilla's parents were refugees from China and Vietnam. The United States is a nation of immigrants, and we should be proud of that." — said a top Manager.
In his first days as President, trump has signed decrees, prescribing to restrict the issuance of visas and deny entry to refugees from Africa, the Middle East and Muslim countries. He also signed a decree on the construction of new barriers on the border with Mexico – the so-called "great Mexican wall".
Trump has offered to Finance the construction of the 20% tax on goods produced in Mexico and imported to the USA. In the end, the President of Mexico, Enrique peña Nieto refused to travel to Washington, which was to be held this week.
"We need to keep this country safe, but we should do that by focusing on people who actually pose a threat. Expanding the focus of law enforcement beyond people who are real threats would make all Americans less safe by diverting resources, while millions of undocumented folks who don't pose a threat will live in fear of deportation.
We should also keep our doors open to refugees and those who need help. That's who we are. Had we turned away refugees a few decades ago, Priscilla's family wouldn't be here today." - said Zuckerberg.
However, the head of Facebook endorsed the decision by trump to support children whose parents are immigrants bring to the United States.
After the signing of the trump of the decree for the restriction of immigration, Google urged their employees that are outside of the United States, to return to the country as soon as possible.
