On Monday, Fox News reported that the embattled Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) along with about 40 other alleged “immigration and civil rights groups,” signed a letter demanding that corporate America blacklist former Trump aides.
“Some of these individuals have left the administration in recent months,”said the letter, addressed to CEOs of all Fortune 500 companies. “Regardless of when they leave, they should not be allowed to seek refuge in your boardrooms or corner offices. Allowing them to step off the revolving door and into your welcoming arms should be a nonstarter.”
Translation: We hate Trump and we’re demanding that you refuse to hire anyone who worked in his administration.
Fox News added:
The coalition targeting the Trump administration officials also purchased an ad in Sunday’s New York Times that read: Attention Corporate America: Don’t let hate into your boardroom.” The ad features a MAGA-like hat emblazoned with the slogan “Put Kids In Cages.”
The campaign was organized by Restore Public Trust, a predominantly Democratic public-interest group. Spokesman Karl Frisch told Bloomberg that the letter serves as a warning to corporations that hire former Trump administration officials.
He said that companies “need to think twice about what that will mean for their brand to be associating with somebody who is responsible for one of the most horrific policies this administration put forward and that speaks volumes.”
We're carrying a simple message in today's @nytimes:
Corporate America should not allow administration officials responsible for Trump's family separation policy to seek refuge in their corner offices or boardrooms.#FamiliesBelongTogetherhttps://t.co/J0CZcUpklk pic.twitter.com/KMveqNPb52

The groups signing the letter, which include the National Immigration Law Center, RAICES and America’s Voice, called on companies to “make it clear that you will not hire for employment, contract for consulting, or seat on your boards” anyone involved in Trump’s family separation policy.
The letter’s release is timed to the April 6 anniversary of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s announcement of the “zero tolerance” immigration enforcement policy that led to the separation of more than 2,000 migrant children from their parents over the course of less than two months. Trump announced an end to the policy in June.
So, does that mean no one should hire anyone who worked for Barack Obama, since his administration did the same thing?
