The biggest technology sectors like Microsoft Google Amazon and Facebook joined hand in a legal case filing requesting the judge to cancel the decision of travel ban taken by present US President Mr. Donald Trump in US appeals court for the District of Maryland.
More than 160 companies from different sectors including technology sector comes in the favor of the big companies and opposes trumps cruel travel ban decision.
Federal judges have give a stay order to trumps order issued in march 2017 to temporarily seal the US borders for refugees and 6 major Muslim countries, that is Iran Libya, Syria Sudan, Somalia and Yemen. The ruling president announced the ban for these countries for a period of 90 days. In the favor of opponents a US judge from the state of Hawaii calls the ban an “irreparable injury”.
In Maryland US District Judge Theodore Chuang issued a similar reaction and claiming that the revision discriminates against Muslims.
In the legal filing on Wednesday companies extended their arguments that the decision will not only discriminate Muslims but it is also an overstepped taken by any US president to change rules regarding who is allowed to enter into this country.
The companies argued that the decision will affect US companies their employees, as well as the US economy.
The ban will largely affect the companies to attract talented employees. Increase costs make it tougher to compete and make it more difficult to invest in immigrant friendly countries. Trumps first effort was taken in January but was sealed by the court in Washington state on the basis that it will violated the country’s constitution’s prohibition of religious discrimination.
Chuang ruled that the opposition filed against the second ban in the court is likely to prevail on the merits, that they are likely to suffer irreparable harm in the absence of injunctive relief and that the balance of the equities and the public interest favor an injunction.”
However, Trump promised to fight the flawed ruling all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary, describing it as “unprecedented judicial overreach.”
