Tech companies come out swinging against immigration ban

Some tech companies are taking a stand against President Donald Trump’s immigration ban.

The order, issued on Friday, temporarily bars citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries, as well as all refugees from entering the United States.

The Trump administration has said the ban is temporary and has been put in place to protect the country from terrorist attacks.

The executive order, though, has been met with protests around the country and around the world, with religious leaders taking a stand; U.S. State Department officers signing a document saying the move makes the country less safe, and people gathering to protest at major airports where some travelers into the U.S. were being detained.
