Uber is sending an email to people who canceled their accounts over the weekend reminding them that the company thinks President Donald Trump's immigration ban is "unjust, wrong, and against everything we stand for as a company."
The email suggests that the #DeleteUber movement, which arose on Twitter over the weekend and encouraged people to delete the Uber account from their phones, is having an effect.

The email reminds those former users that Uber "shares your views on the unjust immigration ban," and guides them to CEO Travis Kalanick's statement on the issue. In that statement, Kalanick explains how Uber is planning to compensate drivers who are temporarily stuck outside the country because of the order.
The #DeleteUber movement started after the New York Taxi Workers Alliance called for a temporary halt to rides heading to John F.

Uber would not comment on the number of people who have canceled their accounts, but it's clearly a lot higher than normal and the company seems to be more than a little concerned about it.
