Yesterday, over 100 executives, including many from the US’s most influential tech companies, signed onto a letter urging congressional leaders to protect Dreamers. The coalition argued that losing Dreamer protections would cost the US economy $350 billion in GDP and $90 billion in tax revenue.

The letter drew support from nearly every major figure in the tech and telecom world, including AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson and Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg, along with Apple’s Tim Cook, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, Google’s Sundar Pichai, and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg.

T-Mobile and Sprint did not respond to requests for comment, but their absence from the letter may have something to do with the proposed merger between the two companies, announced in April and currently under review by the Department of Justice and FCC. Makena Kelly/@verge
