More than 100 Microsoft workers signed an open letter calling for the company to sever its ties with Immigration and Customs Enforcement over the agency's family separation policy.

Why it matters: Microsoft said in a January blog post it was "proud" of the work it was doing with ICE. The company said Monday it was "dismayed' by the family separation practices but defended its work with the agency. CEO Satya Nadella has not commented directly on the move, which has drawn condemnation from the CEOs of Apple, Google, Facebook and many other tech companies.
