More than 60 major technology companies, including Apple , Google and Facebook, backed a lawsuit against the new travel ban approved by new US President Donald Trump and decided not to put their weight behind a new lawsuit seeking to block the second version of the executive order .
The lawsuit, filed in a federal court in the state of Hawaii on Tuesday, on behalf of Silicon Valley companies, included the names of 58 companies, compared to 127 companies that had signed a similar memorandum filed in the appeals court last month after Trump’s first executive decision banning travel From a few Muslim countries on the grounds that their citizens pose a security threat.
One of the companies that has insisted on continuing to support the lawsuit is the new version of the travel ban, Airbnb, Dropbox and Kickstarter. For companies that chose to back down, the new list included Microsoft, eBay, Intel, Netflix and Twitter.
A federal judge in Hawaii ordered a suspension of Trump’s new travel ban throughout the United States, hours before it came into effect. Trump criticized the court’s decision, saying it “carries political dimensions and I will fight it.”
The state and other plaintiffs, including the Hawaiian Muslim Association, have called for the suspension of the decision to violate the Constitution and US laws, and its implementation would damage the tourism and education sectors and directly harm Muslims in the state.
The ruling by the Hawaii court came just hours before the Trump decision to ban the entry of citizens of six Muslim countries into the United States for 90 days. The new Trump decision excluded Iraq from the list of countries covered by the embargo – Syria, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen, Iran . He also excluded the decision of Trump Green Card holders and legal residents in the United States.
Technology companies, generally dependent on skilled workers from outside the United States more than other industries, have played a major role in legal endeavors that led to the suspension of the first version of the travel ban, ordered by a Seattle judge in early February the past.Viewing:-43
