LATEST NEWS – Silicon Valley’s top firms, including Microsoft, Apple and Google, are among 97 technology giants that have filed a motion in a US court against President Donald Trump’s controversial immigration order calling it “violation” of the laws and the Constitution.
The ban represents “a sudden shift in the rules governing entry into the US, and is inflicting substantial harm on US companies,” says the court document filed yesterday, which was also backed by Twitter, Netflix and Uber.
The motion was filed with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which yesterday denied the US government’s emergency request to resume Trump’s travel ban, CNNmoney reported.
Other companies that have filed included other top tech firms including Facebook, eBay and Intel, as well as non-tech companies such as Levi Strauss and Chobani.
