"Tech companies condemn Trump's revised travel ban", 6 Mar 2017

Top execs from several tech companies were quick to speak out against the new executive order on Monday, with some hinting at possible legal action.  "Lyft stands firmly against this order," Logan Green, Lyft's cofounder and CEO, said in a statement…Uber, Lyft's chief rival, also spoke up against the measure.  "Our sentiment has not changed: President Trump's immigration ban is unjust and wrong...Brian Chesky, Airbnb's cofounder and CEO, tweeted Monday: "Barring people from entering our country because of where they're from was wrong the first time around - still wrong"…The revised order…drops Iraq as one of the countries and exempts citizens who are legal permanent residents of the U.S. and have valid visas to enter the country…Tech companies and trade groups are still in the process of parsing through the updated immigration order and figuring out the right response…Reps for Twitter, GoPro, Salesforce and Netflix declined to comment on the revised order Monday.  Others like Apple, Google, Facebook and Amazon did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
