Mark Zuckerberg uses Facebook Live to protest President Trump’s decision to rescind DACA

Mark Zuckerberg is leveraging Facebook to protest President Donald Trump’s repeal of DACA.

The CEO took to Facebook (FB, Tech30) Live for 45 minutes on Wednesday to stream a conversation in his home with three undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children.

Zuckerberg repeated his earlier condemnation of Trump’s decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, which allowed recipients known as “Dreamers” to live, work and study in the U.S. without fear of deportation. Congress now has six months to develop a legislative solution.

“To offer the American Dream to people, and then to take it away and punish people for trusting their government and coming out of the shadows … is one of the most troubling things I think I’ve seen a long time in our country,” he said.

In a Facebook post Tuesday, he called the move “particularly cruel.”
