Microsoft Demands Immigration Exemptions For Employed Terrorists
Microsoft is requesting exemptions from President Trump’s immigration ban because of 76 terrorists they employ within the United States. I’d like to know why Microsoft is providing employment to these foreign terrorists when they could easily be employing White Americans instead. This entire employment practice by Microsoft is un-American and wrong.
From Tech Crunch:
Microsoft isn’t ending its general opposition to Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration from last week, but it is more formally requesting the granting of immediate exceptions that would help its own employees, as well as the employees of other tech companies who are lawful visa holders but still affected by the ban.
In a blog post, Microsoft President and Chief Legal Officer Brad Smith detailed the need the company identifies for an “exception process” that would make it possible for “Responsible Known Travelers with Pressing Needs” to get back into the U.S. This category of traveler would include visa holders from the countries named in Trump’s order who have families within the U.S. but were traveling abroad at the time the order was issued.
Smith notes that Microsoft has 76 employees, with 41 dependents, who currently hold non-immigrant visas allowing them to live in the U.S. who are affected by the order. He also points out that the order actually already includes a provision that allows DHS and the Secretary of State to issues visas and entry permissions on a “case-by-case basis, and when in the national interest.”
The fact that Microsoft is making this request leads me to believe that they should be investigated by the federal government. Why would Microsoft be so eager to request exemptions for these employees? There might be a major national security risk here! For all we know they might be creating software for ISIS.
Besides, Microsoft for years has terrorized millions of people with the release of shitty operating systems like Windows Millennium Edition and Windows Vista. Think of all the pain and suffering they caused by not including a start button with the release of Windows 8! There’s definitely historical grounds to investigate Microsoft as a terrorist organization. Let’s hope we see one soon!
