DACA Gets Hollywood, Silicon Valley Support: Shonda Rhimes, Tim Cook, Rob Reiner Blast Trump’s Holiday Cliffhanger


As President Donald Trump turned a long holiday weekend into a cruel cliffhanger, Hollywood and Silicon Valley were raising their voices about Tuesday’s expected announcement about ending DACA, the program that protects nearly 800,000 working and school-going people brought into the U.S. illegally as children.

Some folks, like Shonda Rhimes, Jonny Lee Miller, Susan Sarandon and Frances Fisher, linked to petitions, planned actions and further reading about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. Apple CEO Tim Cook pledged to stand by his 250 Dreamer employees, House of Cards writer Beau Willimon shamed iPhone users who “rail” against the very workers assembling their gadgets, CNN’s Ana Navarro shared her personal story, and Rob Reiner — well, read his for yourself. We’ll save it for last.
