Apple CEO Tim Cook should really stick to focusing on the lack of features for the iPhone instead of preaching to the rest of us that we should just blindly accept all immigrants, regardless of their legality in the country. As you can see above, Cook even questions Americans' humanity.
Cook spoke at the Bloomberg Global Business Forum in New York City this week, and the topic of the possible elimination of DACA came up.
“I think it’s the biggest issue of our time,” Cook said. “Because this goes to the values of being American.”
It’s funny that Cook would use American values as his crutch in order to make people feel bad for wanting to hold people that are in the U.S. illegally to the letter of the law.
According to a June 2016 report, done by Apple themselves, 56 percent of Apple employees are white, while 46 percent of Apple’s “new hires” are also white. Asians make up the second largest segment of the Apple employee base coming in at 19 percent of Apple employees. Hispanics comprise 12 percent of Apple employees, black employees come in at nine percent and “multiracial” and “other” make up three percent of the work force.
Conversely, the United States Census reported that, as of July 1, 2016, the U.S. population estimate for the “Hispanic or Latino” segment of the country comes in at 17.8 percent. “Black or African-American” people make up 13.3 percent of the population, and Asians comprise 5.7 percent of the population.
By those numbers, it would appear Cook doesn’t practice what he preaches. If he was so concerned about illegal immigrants being forced out of this country, and wants to hire more immigrants, why is it that the only race that is over-represented is the Asian segment of his employee base?
Cook continued on his self-righteous tangent:
On the broader issue of immigration, if I was a country leader right now my goal would be to monopolize the world’s talent. I’d want every smart person coming to my country, because smart people create jobs and jobs is the ultimate thing that create a great environment in a country a land of opportunity, a land where everybody can do well if you work hard.
The American dream is real. You absolutely can do well if you work hard. But, if you break the law, don’t expect everyone to bend over backwards for you in order to facilitate your breaking of the law.
Immigration isn’t a smart bomb. Every single person that enters the U.S. illegally, or legally for that matter, isn’t the best and brightest from wherever they’re coming from. You will probably get some of the best and brightest from around the world, but you’re also going to get those that take advantage of the system.
Immigration is a cornerstone of the U.S. Nobody has a problem with legal immigration. Come one, come all. Just please sign the book before you come in.
