Murdoch, Kleinfeld, Dauman and Ryan Applaud Protection of Immigrant Children
Today, the Partnership for New York City issued a statement on the Obama Administration’s acceptance of a key piece of the DREAM Act.
Joint Statement of Rupert Murdoch, Chairman & CEO of News Corporation; Klaus Kleinfeld, CEO of Alcoa Inc.; Philippe Dauman, President & CEO of Viacom; and Kevin Ryan, CEO of Gilt Groupe:
“In the face of Congressional deadlock over immigration reform, the Partnership for New York City applauds the Obama Administration for acting to protect immigrant children from the threat of deportation. We hope this prompts Congress to reach agreement on common sense immigration policies that reflect American labor market needs and American values. Young people who had no choice over coming to this country, have grown up here and now want to become productive members of our society should not be treated like criminals.”
