Wednesday night in Arizona, Donald Trump didn't just talk about immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally. He also proposed restricting the number of legal immigrants in the country, saying, "It's our right, as a sovereign nation, to choose immigrants that we think are the likeliest to thrive and flourish and love us."

Charles River Ventures, a venture capital firm founded in Boston, has taken umbrage with Trump's immigration stance. They've written the post, "F*ck Trump" that includes:

"Donald Trump’s anti-immigration statements are diametrically opposed to the core values of entrepreneurship. And at CRV, we’ve had enough."

In their response they also add that their firm will begin covering the costs for U.S. visas for any CRV company founders.
