'Muslim Ban' became popular in a few days and meet the world's major media with various forms of prohibition which is particularly noticeable at several airports in the United States.

You will see the hustle rejection of the policy, both from the official institutions of the judiciary, officials from several countries, and even this time from a franchise company Starbucks coffee shop.

They, the owner of the coffee shop, citing the sites CNN Indonesia, today, plans to recruit 10 thousand of immigrants around the world over the next five years, in response to the policy of banning entry to the US.

Howard Schultz, Starbucks chief executive, said in a letter to employees posted on the official website of the company, citing AFP on Monday, January 30th.

"I am writing to you today with deep concern, with a heavy heart and definite promise."

He added that they are currently facing a situation that had never previously suspected from the realities of life.

"Today, we live in a moment that was never thought before, when all bear witness to the conscience of this country, and the promise of the American Dream, which began to be questioned."

Trump policies signed since his reign, in the form of regulations that prohibit the entry of the refugees to the United States for 120 days.

Specifically, the US government rejected the arrival of the Syrian refugees origin, blocking the arrival of members of the seven Muslim-majority countries for 90 days.

It is understandable when Schultz objected because most employees are recruited immigrants from refugees of war, persecution and discrimination of the 75 countries where it operates the coffee shop.

"And we're going to start this business in the United States with an initial focus in the form of individual US soldiers who serve as translators and support personnel in some countries where the military is in charge of the country."

But. This policy is already underway, many people feel that unusual. It seems that the refusal to continue with the implication that happens, even the shock for a lot of people have not stopped at the discretion of the new president.
