Microsoft, Uber and Facebook have issued strong statements of support for DACA, the Obama-era policy that shields 800,000 undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children from deportation. President Trump is reportedly on the verge of ending the program, though the White House said Thursday that he hadn't made up his mind.

What's Next: Expect more tech companies to weigh in strongly in support of keeping the protections. Axios' Mike Allen reported this morning that top CEOs plan to speak out if Trump ends DACA, which also allows the "Dreamers" to obtain work permits.
