After President Donald Trump issued an executive order detailing a travel and immigration ban, 96 companies responded, telling the president that he was messing with their businesses.
The man who ran on the premise that he was a brilliant businessman and would be good for American business has ticked off almost 100 companies, all of whom banded together to write a brief and file legal documents in objection to the ban.
Referring to the executive order signed on January 27, the brief reads: “The Order represents a significant departure from the principles of fairness and predictability that have governed the immigration system of the United States for more than fifty years. And the Order inflicts significant harm on American business, innovation, and growth as a result.”
The 96 companies have made it their business to build relationships and ties all around the world, and the ban would threaten many of those as it has already produced uncertainty around the globe.
While many of the companies on the list are tech companies, there is a notable exception with Tesla, run by Elon Musk. Musk himself sits on Trump’s advisory board but has said that he will stay there in order to attempt to help change things from the inside out.
