Liberal lawmakers, celebrities and airport protesters aren't the only ones pushing back against President Trump's executive order on immigration, which bans travelers from seven nations in the Middle East and Africa. Democratic governors pledged to help free detainees being held in U.S. airports, federal judges tried to limit the EO's power in court, while protesters stormed airports like JFK international airport, where several foreign detainees were being held.
Starbucks is joining the resistance. In a letter to his employees on Sunday, the coffee company's CEO Howard Schultz shared a list of commitments he plans to fulfill in the near future. All of them, you'll notice, were a critique on President Trump's policies. In his message, Schultz said he hopes to "support" men and women under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, "stand ready to help and support our Mexican customers, and partners" and protect employees' health care plans under the Affordable Care Act.
His most controversial note, however, came under his future hiring plans.
