News emerged Sunday night that 97 companies, a lot of them from the tech sector, had filed an amicus brief opposing the president's executive order calling for a 90-day ban on immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim nations and a 120-day ban on all refugees.
The amicus brief has been filed against Donald Trump's executive order that has temporarily halted the issuance of travel and work visas to citizens of seven Muslim-dominant countries. The amicus brief was filed in the ninth circuit court of appeals and emphasises the importance of immigrants in the economy and society.
The amicus brief, which is a legal document signed by parties that have a strong interest in a case but are not a part of the litigation, has been signed by major tech companies like Apple, Facebook, Google, and Microsoft.
"Immigrants make numerous Nation's greatest discoveries, and create some of the country's most innovative and iconic companies", the brief states. However, Musk has stated that he struggled to make the immigration issue the first discussion of the agenda and hopes that the meetings produce impact.
"The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned", Trump wrote in a tweet. I believe this is doing good, so will remain on council & keep at it.
Trump's executive order to restrict travel to the United States for citizens of Syria, Iraq, Iran, Yemen, Libya, Somalia and Sudan caused mass confusion at airports around the world last week. Kalanick explained that he didn't want his seat on the council to be "misinterpreted" as him backing Trump's agenda. These situations nearly certainly are not unique to our employees and their families.
According to Musk, he specifically asked for the immigration ban to be the primary subject, as he assures that the request was accepted. 'America has long recognized the importance of protecting ourselves against those who would do us harm. From what we see so far, we are concerned that the changes are inconsistent with Red Hat's values, including diversity.
The world is becoming one under the forces of globalization and technological innovation.
