Consider this Part 1, the file is far to big for one blog, some real nifty stuff, and I think some all ready know, or maybe not, but anyway here we go. Here's what CEOs and other leaders have to say. And by the way these CEO's are a part of the establishment of the UN UK.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg.
Apple CEO Tim Cook.
Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein.
Disney CEO Bob Iger.
Bloomberg founder and CEO Michael Bloomberg.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai.
JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said on Tuesday that DACA, which protects 800,000 undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children, "is being rescinded." The Department of Homeland Security will stop processing new applications today.

The administration signaled its plan to end the program last week, and business leaders banded together to ask President Trump and Congress to reconsider. Amazon (AMZN) CEO Jeff Bezos, Apple (AAPL) CEO Tim Cook and Snapchat (SNAP) CEO Evan Spiegel as well as hundreds of other executives signed a letter calling on the president to preserve the program.

The DHS said that it will continue to renew permits that expire in the next six months, giving Congress some time to figure out how to continue to protect current DACA recipients.

Here's what CEOs and other leaders have to say.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg was one of over 400 CEOs to sign the letter asking Trump and Congress to save DACA. "This is a sad day for our country," he said in a Facebook (FB) post Tuesday following Session's announcement. "The decision to end DACA is not just wrong. It is particularly cruel to offer young people the American Dream, encourage them to come out of the shadows and trust our government, and then punish them for it."

Zuckerberg added, "It's time for Congress to act to pass the bipartisan Dream Act or another legislative solution that gives Dreamers a pathway to citizenship."

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg

Sheryl Sandberg also posted a reaction on Facebook. "I'm heartbroken and deeply concerned that President Trump's administration has decided to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program," she wrote on Tuesday.

"Dreamers deserve to be protected and live without fear. I'm standing with them and their families today -- and asking Congress to pass the DREAM Act or other permanent legislation right away to give them a much-needed path to citizenship."

Apple CEO Tim Cook

In a letter to employees obtained by CNNMoney, Cook said "I am deeply dismayed that 800,000 Americans — including more than 250 of our Apple coworkers — may soon find themselves cast out of the only country they've ever called home."

Dreamers, he said, "help customers in our retail stores. They engineer the products people love and they're building Apple's future as part of our R&D teams. They contribute to our company, our economy and our communities just as much as you and I do. Their dreams are our dreams."

Cook assured employees that "Apple will work with members of Congress from both parties to advocate for a legislative solution that provides permanent protections for all the Dreamers in our country."

Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein

Goldman Sachs (GS) CEO Lloyd Blankfein commented in a tweet that "immigration is a complex issue but I wouldn't deport a kid who was brought here and only knows America."

He added, "Congress must address."

Disney CEO Bob Iger

Bob Iger, Chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Co (DIS)., said on Tuesday that "the Dreamers impacted by this cruel and misguided decision make significant contributions to our economy and our country."

He added, "I urge Congress to take immediate bipartisan action to pass legislation that will protect these innocent people."

Bloomberg founder and CEO Michael Bloomberg

In a tweet sent prior to Session's press conference, Michael Bloomberg said "Bloomberg is lucky to have Dreamers. They're helping power our company & economy. Business leaders want a solution -- Congress must lead."

Google CEO Sundar Pichai

Google (GOOG) CEO Sundar Pichai said in a tweet on Tuesday that "Dreamers are our neighbors, our friends and our co-workers. This is their home." He added, "Congress needs to act now to defend DACA."

JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon

JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon spoke out on behalf of business lobbying group Business Roundtable, where he serves as chairman.

"America is and always has been a country of immigrants," Dimon said in a statement released by Business Roundtable. "We should do everything in our power to continue to attract the best and brightest because they make us stronger as a people and as an economy. And, when people come here to learn, work hard and give back to their communities, we should allow them to stay in the United States."

Business Roundtable's president and CEO Joshua Bolten urged Congress and President Trump to find an alternative to DACA before the six-month deadline ends. "Failure to act would have a significant negative impact on businesses that rely on employees who are here and working lawfully," he said.

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates

In a Facebook post, Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Bill Gates wrote, "I'm very disappointed with today's decision to end DACA."

"Hundreds of thousands of young people who have been educated in the United States and have played by the rules their whole lives will be forced to live under the threat that they will be separated from their families, friends, and communities," he added. "Melinda and I have been incredibly impressed by the Dreamers we have come across in our work with Microsoft, the foundation, and other programs we have supported over the years."

Gates said he hopes "Congress will quickly pass a permanent fix to allow these young people to stay in the country without the destructive fear of deportation."

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella

"Dreamers make our country & communities stronger," said Microsoft (MSFT) CEO Satya Nadella in a tweet. "We stand for diversity and economic opportunity for everyone."

Nadella linked to a tweet and blog post by Microsoft President and Chief Legal Officer Brad Smith, where he vowed to defend Microsoft's DREAMers in court if need be.

"We are deeply disappointed by the administration's decision today to rescind protection under the program for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals," Smith said. "As we said last week, we believe this is a big step back for our entire country."

Airbnb co-founders Brian Chesky, Joe Gebbia and Nathan Blecharczyk

The Airbnb co-founders offered a broad comment in response to the DACA decision, saying "we founded Airbnb based on the idea that our lives and our world are better when we accept each other. Those aren't just economic or business values. Those are the values America has been and should be all about."

Lyft co-founders Logan Green and John Zimmer

Lyft co-founder John Zimmer tweeted a link to the open letter signed by CEOs last week with the comment "Dreamers add to our communities and economy. Ending DACA is wrong - we now must work together to ask congress to act."

His co-founder and the company's CEO Logan Green retweeted the post, adding "we stand with Dreamers & support inclusivity for all. Ending DACA is wrong."
Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins

Cisco (CSCO) CEO Chuck Robbins also weighed in, writing "so proud of Cisco Dreamers," on Twitter. He added, "we stand with you all - we need the US Congress to act quickly to resolve this situation."

Box CEO Aaron Levie

"Congress must act immediately to allow Dreamers to stay," Box (BOX) CEO Aaron Levie wrote on Twitter. "This should be priority # 1 given the confusion and stress ending DACA will cause."

Univision President and CEO Randy Falco

Univision (UVN) President and CEO Randy Falco said on Tuesday, "DREAMers are our students, soldiers, first responders, coworkers, neighbors, and friends." He added that at Univision, "we will continue to stand by them, including those talented DREAMers working at our company to advance our mission."

U.S. Chamber of Commerce Senior Vice President and Chief Policy Officer Neil Bradley

A top official in the U.S. Chamber of Commerce said on Tuesday that "the original DACA program announced in 2012 was premised on sound public policy, and unlike DAPA, it was not challenged in court. Individuals enrolled in good faith and became ingrained in our communities and the nation's economy. To reverse course now and deport these individuals is contrary to fundamental American principles and the best interests of our country."

He added that the decision "runs contrary to the president's goal of growing the U.S. economy," and said that the Chamber asks "the administration and the Congress work together to quickly find a legislative solution before the program expires."

TechNet President and CEO Linda Moore

Linda Moore, CEO of the national bipartisan network of CEOs TechNet, said on Tuesday that "Ending DACA will be highly disruptive to the U.S. economy." She added, "Whether you agree with DACA or not, ending it without anything to replace it creates unnecessary uncertainty for our economy and for almost 800,000 young people in this country who have passed background checks, paid fees, and are contributing to our economy, pursuing their studies, or even serving in our military."

She concluded, "the President's action now makes it an urgent priority for Congress to turn its sympathy for these young people into a law that ends the uncertainty they face."

ALERT ALERT

GOP Activist Investigating Hillary Clinton’s Lost Emails
Found Dead — Apparent Suicide By Black Plastic Bag Republican activist Peter Smith was found dead in his hotel room in May 2017 in Rochester, Minnesota.

The hotel staff found Smith with a black plastic bag on his head. He was trying to obtain Hillary Clinton’s lost emails.

UPDATE: Mueller and Congressional investigators have interviewed Smith’s acquaintances several times. Our sources say there is much more to this story.

The Wall Street Journal reported:

Peter W. Smith, a Republican political activist and financier from Chicago who mounted an effort to obtain former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails from Russian hackers, died on May 14 after asphyxiating himself in a hotel room in Rochester, Minn., according to local authorities. He was 81 years old.

Mr. Smith’s body was found by a hotel clerk in the Aspen Suites hotel, located across the street from the Mayo Clinic, according to a Rochester Police Department report. An associate of Mr. Smith said that he had recently visited the clinic. A representative for the facility wouldn’t confirm if Mr. Smith was a patient.

Mr. Smith died about 10 days after an interview with The Wall Street Journal in which he recounted his attempts to acquire what he believed were thousands of emails stolen from Mrs. Clinton’s private email server. He implied that Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, then serving as the senior national security adviser to presidential candidate Donald Trump, was aware of his efforts…

…The police report said Mr. Smith was found by a hotel clerk with a plastic bag around his head attached tightly with black rubber bands. Mr. Smith “left documentation on why he committed suicide, medical records, his written obituary, and life insurance” on a table in his room, the report said.

Massachusetts Man Arrested After Trying To Hire
A Hit Man On Twitter To Kill ICE Agents For $500

A 33-year-old lefty from Cambridge, Massachusetts named Brandon Ziobrowski was arrested Thursday after offering anyone on Twitter $500 to kill ICE agents.

Ziobrowski also expressed his desire to slit John McCain’s throat in several tweets.

FOX News reported:

A Massachusetts man was arrested in New York on Thursday after trying to hire a hit man on Twitter to kill ICE agents for $500 and sharing his desire to slit the throat of Sen. John McCain, federal officials said.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts said that Brandon Ziobrowski, 33, from Cambridge, Mass. was charged with one count of use of interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat and injure another person for the alleged Twitter posts this year.

Federal officials said Ziobrowski tweeted a murder for hire solicitation to kill Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents for $500, and repeatedly tweeted his desire to slit the throat of McCain, R-Ariz.

“The agents and officers out there enforcing federal laws are doing their job, plain and simple,” U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said at a news conference. “There is a difference between public debate and putting others in fear of their lives.”

Federal officials said Ziobrowski in March started tweeting threatening messages against federal agents that work for ICE.

On July 2, the 33-year-old allegedly tweeted: “I am broke but will scrounge and literally give $500 to anyone who kills ICE agent. @me seriously who else can pledge get in on this lets make this work.”

The Justice Department released a statement on the arrest of Ziobrowski:
