Statement from Small Business Majority Founder & CEO John Arensmeyer in response to President Donald Trump’s decision to end Deferred Action for Child Arrivals and how eliminating that policy could harm entrepreneurship

In light of the fact that President Trump has announced he will end Deferred Action for Child Arrivals (DACA), it is important to reemphasize the importance of sensible immigration policies for the benefit of both our small business community and our economy as a whole. After all, immigrants and particularly young people like the Dreamers who have been protected under DACA are the lifeblood of entrepreneurship–they work at small businesses, start small businesses and contribute to our economic success.

Statement from Small Business Majority Founder & CEO John Arensmeyer in response to today’s announcement by the Trump administration that it intends to drastically reduce the budget for Affordable Care Act advertising and outreach

 

The Trump administration today said it plans to cut the advertising budget for open enrollment for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) marketplaces by 90 percent while also reducing funding for the in-person ACA outreach program by $23 million. If finalized, these moves will hurt small businesses because we need a robust education and outreach program to stabilize the ACA marketplaces and ensure small business owners and their employees have the information they need to enroll in health coverage.

As advocates for the small business community, we condemn the violence, hatred and racial divisiveness displayed last weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia. The small business community is vast, diverse and represents all walks of life, and small business’ equally diverse workforce is what keeps our businesses humming and contributes to our global competitiveness. Entrepreneurs stand against bigotry because it is the right thing to do and also because it’s the right move for our business community and the economy.
