Google creates $4 million immigration crisis fund

Google has created an immigration crisis fund of $2 million, which can and most likely will be matched with $2 million. The additional money will come from donations from employees from all levels.

The fund is meant to support four different organizations - Immigrant Legal Resource Center, American Civil Liberties Union, International Rescue Committee and The UN Refugee Agency.

The new president, Donald Trump, has set in motion many anti-immigration laws, and Google's CEO Sundar Pichai has voiced strong objections to them. And this fund is meant to help these organizations help the people who need it.

The most recent policy of Donald Trump, the immigration ban, has been denounced by executives from a number of companies such as Google, Netflix, Apple, Tesla Motors, Microsoft and Uber.

According to Pichai, the ban affects at least 187 people working for Google right now.

"We'll continue to make our views on these issues known to leaders in Washington and elsewhere," was written in Google's statement.
