Today — Postmates Vice President of Public Policy & Strategic Communications Vikrum Aiyer issued the following statement lauding the Administration’s immigration actions:

“This marks a new beginning for countless American families, as we applaud President Biden's decision to rescind the Muslim ban, expand diversity visas for workers of all stripes, and fortify protections of our youngest DREAMers.

"As a platform that connects people from all walks of life, to the tastes, scents, and goods that power our communities, the xenophobic policies of the last four years undermined America’s core values and risked neighborhood prosperity. That is why the Administration's executive actions, and legislative call of Congress to step in and right these wrongs are an integral step forward in addressing a winter of peril, with the promise of America's tapestry of diversity.

"We thank the leadership of Sen. Coons (D-DE) and Rep. Chu (D-CA), Muslim Advocates, the ACLU, others in civil society who fought tirelessly the to drive us to this day. We remain confident this legislation vision and these executive actions can restore our country’s commitment to our highest ideals and protect a vital source of economic dynamism by dismantling and degrading policies of hate.”
