Tech firms join together to file legal brief against Trump's immigration ban
Sunday morning, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit refused to reverse a federal judge's ruling that blocked the president's executive order that called for the ban. Those challenging the executive order were asked to file written arguments by 4am Eastern Time on Monday.
Essentially an amicus curiae, or "Friend of the Court" brief, the filing by the tech companies opposes Trump's immigration ban that temporarily blocks immigrants from entering the U.S. if they are from one of seven countries. The well-known tech firms are telling the court that the ban "inflicts significant harm on American business."
Some non-tech firms also signed the legal brief including jeans maker Levi Strauss.
