Big companies against Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration


The amicus brief was filed late Sunday in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and emphasizes the importance of immigrants in the economy and society. Each company on the list is stating that their “operations are affected” by the executive order. “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.” It also “inflicts significant harm on American business, innovation, and growth,” making it “more difficult and expensive for US companies to recruit, hire, and retain some of the world’s best employees.” Several federal courts across the United States issued temporary halts on president Trump’s immigration order, it’s Washington state that has mounted the strongest legal attack on the ruling.
