“We’re proud to call Dreamers across the country our colleagues, friends and neighbors, and forever inspired by their resilience and strength,” said Business Roundtable Immigration Chair Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “Dreamers are as American as anyone born in this country, and our laws should reflect that. Once again, we urge Congress to pass bipartisan legislation that creates a pathway to citizenship, and ends the uncertainty and fear our laws have imposed on these young people for far too long.”
