Cummins Chairman and CEO Issues Statement in Support of DACA; Urges Congress to Take Immediate Action

COLUMBUS, Ind.

Today, Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) Chairman and CEO Tom Linebargerissued the following statement after the Trump Administration announced its decision to rescind the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) initiative.

“The decision by the Trump Administration to rescind DACA is discriminatory, harmful and sets our country back. These young people deserve every opportunity to continue living, working, and thriving in the United States – for nearly all of them the U.S. is the only country they have ever known. This is their home.

Dreamers are our colleagues, our friends and our neighbors. They strengthen our country through daily contributions to our companies, our universities and our communities. We have a moral obligation to help these young people, protect them from living in fear, and to prevent families from being torn apart.

Cummins stands in full support of Dreamers and we ask Congress to take immediate action to pass the Dream Act or find a permanent legislative solution to support these young people before anyone is affected by this decision.

We hope that Americans speak out and make it clear to Congress and the President that we stand with the Dreamers.”
