On December 2nd, 2015, the San Bernardino terrorist attack involving Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik brought significant attention to the federal government’s inability to screen immigrants, refugees and visa applicants.
The lessons of this attack – which left 14 people dead and 22 others seriously injured – were lost on many government officials who continued their push for the United States intake of refugees and impossible to vet immigrants.
Over two months later, the terrorist attack has brought attention to the issue of privacy, security and government surveillance. Apple is currently involved in two separate legal cases with government agencies concerning compliance with the All Writs Act and extracting information from various iPhones and operating systems.
Tim Cook released a detailed statement about the situation – and all the political candidates including: Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, Marco Rubio and Donald Trump have taken public positions. Republican front-runner Donald Trump has even gone as far as to suggest a boycott of Apple products until Apple complies with the court order backing the FBI’s request.
