WASHINGTON, US – Leaders of several American companies have announced plans to hire, house or otherwise support people affected by President Trump’s sweeping freeze on people seeking asylum in the U.S.

Starbucks Chairman and CEO Howard Schultz (PICTURE) says his company plans to hire 10,000 refugees in the next five years in the 75 countries where it does business.
