The Acoustical Service Corporation of America said Thursday it will not seek a waiver of President Donald Trump’s temporary immigration restrictions on the United States, as Trump has demanded.
The company said in a statement that it had applied for a waiver under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which allows companies to stay in certain industries that employ at least 50 percent of the workforce from March 4 through March 22.
The president’s actions, however, have led to several large companies to suspend operations in the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, India, New Zealand and other countries that have their own temporary restrictions.
A decision on the company’s request could come in as early as Friday.
The Acoustic Service Corporation has a history of providing sound and acoustic services for more than 150 years.
It’s one of the largest companies that provides acoustics services for government and other organizations.
In addition to its main operations, it also provides sound systems for the Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard.
“It was the right decision to take,” the company said.
“We are not seeking to undermine our relationships with our customers, and our staff is well trained to manage these complex and challenging circumstances.”
The decision comes amid uncertainty over the future of Trump’s travel ban.
The new administration is considering a temporary ban on refugees and migrants from seven majority-Muslim countries, and the U.S. has already deported more than 1 million people who have been granted visas to travel to the United State.
Trump has vowed to stay the ban.
But he has said he will work with Congress to reverse the ban in the near future, and his administration has said it will do so if the court issues a stay.
“The president’s continued enforcement of this dangerous and unlawful executive order is a threat to our nation and its people,” the Acoustics Service Corporation said.
