On Saturday, protests occurred at airports throughout the country because passengers were being detained due to Donald Trump and his immigrant ban. Trump’s band fortunately eventually came to an end when the federal court for the Eastern District of New York put a temporary stop to it.
Lyft took a stand against Trump and his actions and showed their support for immigrants by releasing an open letter and vowing to donate $1,000,000 over the next four years to the ACLU, American Civil Liberties Union.
Lyft’s competitor, Uber, has been taking a lot of heat because their CEO Travis Kalanick has been named along with 19 other executives who provide economic advice to Trump. Uber was also accused of trying to make money off the protest when every other cab and car services went on strike, they continued their service despite being asked not to.This angered many people which sparked the #DeleteUber movement.
