A coffee company gave up a $40,000 deal with Salesforce to protest a contract with US border control

But Cho, who immigrated to the US as a toddler, and Rothgeb, whose father is an immigrant, said they decided not to work with Salesforce following news that the non-profit Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Service (RAICES)rejected a $250,000 donation from the company in protest of its work with the government agency.

Salesforce, which sells customer relationship management software to companies and government entities, has declined to cancel its CBP contract. The company announced its contract publicly in March, though it garnered public awareness until June, when 650 Salesforce employees sent a letter to CEO Marc Benioff criticizing the company’s work with CBP.
