US President Donald Trump met with the widow of Apple founder Steve Jobs, Laurene Powell Jobs, to discuss “immigration and education policy”, the media reported. The meeting was held on Wednesday in the Oval Office, Efe news reported. Powell Jobs, an activist, is the founder and president of an organisation called Emerson Collective that focuses on “removing barriers” to “education, immigration reform (and) the environment”. The contents of the meeting was not immediately clear but, according to White House spokesperson Lindsay Walters, she was slated to speak with Trump about “education and immigration”.

The California activist for years has supported the Dream Act, a bill that failed in the Senate and that would have legalised the status of tens of thousands of undocumented migrants who came to the US as young children – the group known as “Dreamers”.

Besides bringing pressure to bear for immigration reform and the rights of the Dreamers via her organisation, Powell Jobs made clear her opinions on recent immigration measures adopted by Trump on her Twitter account.

“We cannot be silent. Too much suffering already. America wants common-sense immigration reform, not mass deportation,” Powell Jobs had said earlier about Trump’s executive orders to toughen US immigration policy.

They are, it’s important to note, still under investigation by local law enforcement and we’re waiting to see the results of those investigations,” Toner said in a statement. Refraining from commenting on the reason behind the recent violent attacks in the state, Toner expressed his sympathy and sorrow for the bereaved families.
