Canadian Startup Lends Office Space, Wifi to Travelers Stranded by Trump’s Immigration Ban

A Canadian startup has reacted to Donald Trump’s immigrant ban by offering stranded travelers a space to work and communicate with family.

Unbounce, based in Vancouver, is lending some of its office space to those stuck at the local airport, YVR, until they can get into the US.

The company’s CEO, Rick Perreault, made the offer public via Twitter.

The offer includes office space, a phone, and wifi.

President Trump says the goal of the ban, which is temporary, is to “make America safe again.” He noted the ban has thus far affected very few travelers—“Only 109 people out of 325,000 were detained and held for questioning,” he tweeted.
