Following the presidential proclamation on Tuesday, 23rd June 2020, by Donald Trump on the suspension of H- 1B and other visas, Google CEO Sunder Pichai has expressed disappointment. He said in a tweet, “Immigration has contributed immensely to America's economic success, making it a global leader in tech, and also Google the company it is today.” He added, “Disappointed by today's proclamation - we'll continue to stand with immigrants and work to expand opportunity for all.” 

In a separate statement, the president and CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights Vanita Gupta also slammed the latest move of the Trump Administration. She stated, “The latest travel ban is a new season of the same racist, xenophobic show put on by Donald Trump and Stephen Miller.” While further adding, “But Trump's transparent effort to rally his base and distract from his innumerable failures, including his disastrous response to COVID-19, will not work. Indeed, the courts will stop his unlawful actions targeting immigrants. Like the past versions of this overused script using a pandemic to justify white nationalist policies, it deserves to be canceled.” 

Alice G Wells, who was formerly the point person of the Trump Administration for South and Central Asia, also opposed the move. She stated, “Being able to attract the best and the brightest through the H1-B visa program has made America more successful and resilient.
