COLUMBUS, Ind.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 5, 2017--
Today, Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) Chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger issued
the following statement after the Trump Administration announced its
decision to rescind the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals)
“The decision by the Trump Administration to rescind DACA is
discriminatory, harmful and sets our country back. These young people
deserve every opportunity to continue living, working, and thriving in
the United States – for nearly all of them the U.S. is the only country
they have ever known. This is their home.
Dreamers are our colleagues, our friends and our neighbors. They
strengthen our country through daily contributions to our companies, our
universities and our communities. We have a moral obligation to help
these young people, protect them from living in fear, and to prevent
families from being torn apart.
Cummins stands in full support of Dreamers and we ask Congress to take
immediate action to pass the Dream Act or find a permanent legislative
solution to support these young people before anyone is affected by this
We hope that Americans speak out and make it clear to Congress and the
President that we stand with the Dreamers.”
