Faceless Microsoft Staff Demand Action Over Inmmigration
Faceless agitators who work for Microsoft have moved to bring politics to the forefront in Microsoft’s business dealings by demanding that the company’s chief executive, Satya Nadella, immediately cancel its contract with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.
More than 500 employees have put their signature on a petition, but they refuse to name themselves with some observers claiming that “anyone” could have signed the petition.
It appears that the employees are quite happy to have illegal immigrants entering the USA. What’s not known is whether any of the people who signed the petition are illegal immigrants who face being deported in the same way that the Australian Government deports illegal immigrants.
The faceless employees used a single spokesperson to ask questions addressed to Satya Nadella, chief executive officer of Microsoft, while facing a question-and-answer session to ask about the company’s government contracts.
The employees claimed that they declined to be identified for fear of retaliation.
One employee presented Mr. Nadella with a USB stick that contained the petition, along with the signatures.
“We demand Microsoft stop enabling ICE’s mission to punish families seeking safety,” read the petition, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times.
The petition also called for all tech companies that support the operations of ICE and the Customs and Border Protection agency to “cancel their contracts.”
In response, Microsoft said that to the best of its knowledge, its products and services were not being used by federal agencies to separate children from their families at the border.
Microsoft declined to comment on last week’s petition but confirmed that Mr. Nadella had received the USB stick.
The petition was started earlier this month by a coalition of non-profit organizations calling for immigration reform. A group of Microsoft employees circulated the petition internally, collecting signatures.
