    Apple CEO to advocate end to 'inhumane' immigrant children separation: Irish Times

    Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook has described the separation of children from immigrant parents at the U.S.-Mexico border as "inhumane" and promised to be a "constructive voice" in seeking to end the issue, the Irish Times newspaper reported. The family separations, documented by online videos of youngsters detained in cages, has put U.S. President Donald Trump back at the center of a furor over immigration, an issue he inflamed as a presidential candidate. "I’m personally a big believer in the way to be a good citizen is to participate, is to try to advocate your point of view, not to just sit on the sideline and yell or complain," he told The Irish Times in an interview during a visit to Ireland.
