As a consequence, 127 technology giants signed a letter to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal, against this decree of Donald Trump.
Life is not easy for the 45th President of the United States of America.
After the reaction of several technology companies on the presidential decree that would ban the entry and stay in the US of immigrants from seven countries, now this issue was (still) more serious.
This Trump decree, disputed by virtually all, as it was first denied by a federal judge in Brooklyn, Ann M. Donnelly, then the Attorney General, Sally Yates, whose reaction was … ‘Trump fire her.’ Even, the courts have also not accepted this decree.
The judge opens up our country to potential terrorists and others that do not have our best interests at heart. Bad people are very happy!

The various technology companies, which have several immigrant employees, signed and sent a letter to the United States court to try to stop this decree.
Moreover, all the 127 technology companies are well-known names such as Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Google, Uber, Netflix, Intel, Airbnb, Zynga and much more.
In the letter, reported by Bloomberg, that you can read here:-
“Immigrants make many of the Nation’s greatest discoveries, and create some of the country’s most innovative and iconic companies.”
“America has long recognized the importance of protecting ourselves against those who would do us harm. But it has done so while maintaining our fundamental commitment to welcoming immigrants—through increased background checks and other controls on people seeking to enter our country”.
In turn, Donald Trump’s Twitter remains quite active, this time against the media, saying that negative polls are fake news.
The popularity of the 45th US president has been the lowest since 40 years ago, but that has not stopped him from trying to push his strategy forward.
As a result, the demonstrations have been felt throughout the world, and there are even protests already scheduled for the next 3 months.
