Newly Elected US President Donald Trump has signed an executive order titled ‘Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States’. That suspends refugee admissions for 120 days and suspends admissions from Syria which was the main point from many others. For the first since the elections, Mark Zuckerberg CEO of Facebook commented on the President proposed policies.
Mark Zuckerberg posted on his Facebook profile that he was concerned about the impact of recent executive orders signed by the President Donald Trump. And this primarily related to the immigration restriction.
“Like many of you, I’m concerned about the impact of the recent executive orders signed by President Trump,” Zuckerberg wrote in a Facebook post, which cited his family’s immigrant background and his volunteer work with undocumented schoolchildren.
On Friday, President signed the order calling for ‘extreme vetting‘ following the promises said during the campaign trail. He also signed another order of prioritizing the deportation of criminals. Especially to ban the people from several Muslim-majority countries who are coming to the United States.
“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,” Zuckerberg said.
Just before one day, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg also spoke about the order that Trump signed the global gag order. It restricts the government funding from the health organizations from the world on abortion policy.
Zuckerberg spoke out against the President while he was campaigning but remained silent about him after the elections. Some have criticized the timing and narrowness about the Mark Zuckerberg arguments about the immigration. He also mentioned about the H-1B visas for highly skilled workers.
