About BRT

Washington – Chuck Robbins, Chairman and CEO of Cisco Systems, Inc. and Chair of the Business Roundtable Immigration Committee, issued the following statement this evening in response to the Trump Administration’s immigration framework outlined in the State of the Union address:

“America’s immigration system is broken and our leaders in Washington must address major challenges, including reforming the green card and work-based visa systems, addressing the undocumented and controlling our borders. First, President Trump and Congress must immediately enact a solution for DACA. This is both a moral and economic imperative for our country. Dreamers are hard-working students, employees and members of our armed forces who contribute a great deal to our economy and society. They grew up in American schools, share Americans can values and are pursuing the American Dream. A bipartisan agreement on DACA has the real potential to end the gridlock on meaningful immigration reform. The White House and Congress must act soon.”
