Howard Schultz on Immigration

Starbucks CEO; independent candidate for President

 


Border security ok, but don't demonize immigrants

The DREAMers should be allowed a pathway to citizenship. And the 11 million to 12 million unauthorized people who are here should get in line in a fair way, pay their back taxes, pay a fee, and bring them in. We are a country of immigrants. The US should not be building walls. We should be building bridges and allow people in. It is the foundation of our society. But we also should do everything we can to secure the borders with the best technology available, and not allow bad people in.

Hire 10,000 refugees from Trump's Muslim-ban countries

As a chief executive, Schultz cast himself as a compassionate leader who wanted to use his company for social good. He earned praise for the benefits he provided Starbucks retail workers, including a stock ownership plan and the opportunity to attend college free online.

When Trump announced a ban on U.S. visitors from seven predominantly Muslim countries in January 2017, Schultz announced a company goal of hiring 10,000 refugees in stores around the world.
