The Fusion Media Group supports and stands with the thousands of young DACA recipients across the country.
Univision Communications Inc. (UCI), the owner of Fusion Media Group (FMG), has strongly opposed the Trump Administration’s plans to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. UCI recently launched a public campaign to rally its audiences across platforms to “Stand Up. Speak Up. Save the DREAMers. Save the American Dream.” We at FMG are running the PSA (watch above) across our platforms including on the FUSION cable network.
This public campaign builds on a range of other actions being taken by Univision. UCI CEO Randy Falco signed a letter from 500 corporate executives to President Trump touting the important benefits of DACA. After the Trump Administration’s announcement that it would rescind DACA, he publicly expressed his significant disagreement with the decision and feels very strongly that UCI continue to stand in support of DREAMers. Falco also sent a letter to Congress asking elected officials to take action to protect DACA recipients.
Jonathan Schwartz, chief legal & corporate affairs officer for Univision, recently announced to staff that Univision will take a several actions to supports employees who are DACA recipients including providing “individual legal support, at the Company’s expense, for any of our DREAMer employees with respect to DACA matters, including if they are subjected to deportation proceedings.”
