Trump’s ban affects workers in Silicon Valley, Tech leaders speak out

President Donald Trump’s executive order bans citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States for 90 days. The order also suspends the acceptance of refugees in the United States for 120 days.  The order, as per the President will work to keep the Islamic terrorists out of the US.

The order applies to seven Muslim-majority nations including Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, Yemen and Iraq, including those with dual nationals. As per latest reports, Pakistan has a possibility to be in the name of the list of countries.

Tech leaders spoke up and shared how many employees are going to suffer after this executive order. Have a look:

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings

Trump’s actions are hurting Netflix employees around the world, and are so un-American it pains us all. Worse, these actions will make America less safe (through hatred and loss of allies) rather than more safe. A very sad week, and more to come with the lives of over 600,000 Dreamers here in a America under imminent threat. It is time to link arms together to protect American values of freedom and opportunity.

Uber CEO Travis Kalanick

“While every government has their own immigration controls, allowing people from all around the world to come here and make America their home has largely been the U.S.’s policy since its founding,” Kalanick wrote to employees and posted on Facebook. “That means this ban will impact many innocent people — an issue that I will raise this coming Friday when I go to Washington for President Trump’s first business advisory group meeting.”

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella

“As an immigrant and as a CEO, I’ve both experienced and seen the positive impact that immigration has on our company, for the country, and for the world. We will continue to advocate on this important topic.”

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg

“Like many of you, I’m concerned about the impact of the recent executive orders signed by President Trump. We need to keep this country safe, but we should do that by focusing on people who actually pose a threat. We should also keep our doors open to refugees and those who need help.”

Google CEO Sundar Pichai

“It’s painful to see the personal cost of this executive order on our colleagues,” wrote Pichai. “We’re upset about the impact of this order and any proposals that could impose restrictions on Googlers and their families, or that could create barriers to bringing great talent to the US.”

This controversial order by Donald Trump is creating shockwaves all around. More from the White House is expected to arrive regarding the “Muslim Ban”. The ban, though a step to wash off the terrorists from the country, is impacting many innocent people in a negative way.
