CREDO stands up to Trump’s attacks on sanctuary cities
Upholding the dignity of all who live and work in this country is fundamental to who we are as a company and as a nation. That’s why CREDO Mobile recently joined nearly 50 technology companies to file an amicus brief in support of protecting sanctuary cities.
Not only do we have a moral responsibility to ensure all people have the ability to live without fear of persecution—especially from our government—our workforce benefits tremendously from the ingenuity and experiences of our immigrant brothers and sisters.
All business leaders should stand with us against the Administration’s bigotry. Signing this brief reflects CREDO’s commitment to fighting for civil rights, racial justice, and a fair and compassionate immigration system
As the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit hears the City of San Francisco and Santa Clara County’s case, CREDO Mobile stands strong with those resisting the Trump Administration’s cruel and abusive immigration enforcement practices.
The amicus brief, which was filed by the law firm Fenwick & West LLP on behalf of the companies, asserts that Trump’s executive order to rescind funding to states with sanctuary cities is unconstitutional, compels such cities to act contrary to their values, harms the economy, and endangers communities.
