Entertainment Software Association Speaks Out Against Immigration Ban

The entertainment industry is speaking out against recent orders by the Trump Administration to impose a travel ban over the weekend, with the Entertainment Software Association being the latest to comment. In a press release issued today, the association had this to say:

“The Entertainment Software Association urges the White House to exercise caution with regard to vital immigration and foreign worker programs. As a leading force in technology and exporter of entertainment, the U.S. video game industry thrives on the contributions of innovators and storytellers from around the world. While recognizing that enhancing national security and protecting our country’s citizens are critical goals, our companies rely on the skilled talent of U.S. citizens, foreign nationals, and immigrants alike. Our nation’s actions and words should support their participation in the American economy.”

Protests have sprung up all over the United States and in countries abroad, over orders suspending entry to the United States of people with nationality in a list of countries identified as ‘terrorist hotbeds.’ Countless organizations have weighed in on the issue, including the Game Developers Conference who have promised to refund tickets to anyone unable to attend.
