Apple and several of the top tech companies in Silicon Valley have spoken out against President Trump’s controversial immigration ban, but not many tech CEOs have aired their views on camera, until now. 

Earlier this week, during a visit to the University of Glasgow in Scotland to receive an honorary degree, Tim Cook opened up about his feelings on the travel ban that was recently struck down in the courts. During a long fireside chat session, Cook talked about the beauty of getting people with “different backgrounds and all different points of views that are able to create the best products.”

He even invoked the name of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, saying, “Steve was the son of an immigrant. Our company has immigrants in it that are key to the innovation of our company.” Passionately detailing why he hasn’t remained silent on the issue, Cook also said, “Our simple view is that Apple would not exist without immigration, so this is a huge issue for us.”
