On Monday, the technology giants, including Mr. trump, filed a legal brief in support of the immigration ban against trump.
the lawsuit was filed in California by the National Association of manufacturers, Reuters reported. On Monday, more than 50 companies, including Amazon, Facebook, apple, Microsoft, Netflix and twitter, filed amicus briefs in support of the lawsuit.
in June this year, trump signed an order to temporarily prohibit new immigrants from entering the United States by holding a series of work visas, including the H-1B visa for highly skilled workers. The restriction came into effect on June 24 and lasted until the end of the year. This will prevent hundreds of thousands of new immigrants who would otherwise have entered the United States on these work permits.
this move has been opposed by a large number of Silicon Valley technology companies in the United States. Some people believe that this will damage the competitiveness of the U.S. science and technology industry and ultimately harm domestic employment opportunities.
according to the verge, Google spokesman Jose Castaneda said in June that immigration not only promotes technological innovation, creates new businesses and jobs, but also enriches American lives. He believes that the continued success of the United States depends on whether companies can get the best talent from all over the world. “Especially at this moment, we need talent to help the U.S. economy recover.”
according to Reuters, in legal documents, technology companies said visa restrictions would hurt U.S. companies, which would be forced to directly employ these talents overseas, further damaging the U.S. economy. The technology companies think it’s hard to make up for the damage.
“trump’s ban will stifle innovation, hinder growth, and ultimately damage American workers, businesses and the economy in an irreparable way for a long time.” (this article is from surging news. For more original information, please download the “surging news” app)
