Now that Google, Apple and Facebook\u2014along with 94 other American companies\u2014have added their heft to the legal challenge to US president Donald Trump\u2019s executive order banning immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim nations, it brings the Trump regime that is relying on industry to create more jobs for Americans and the companies most of which have thrived by creating space for immigrant talent to an open confrontation. The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals, in San Francisco, is hearing the government\u2019s appeal against the temporary ban a federal judge in Washington state placed on the executive order, and the companies\u2019 legal brief is expected to carry some weight in the matter. Washington, Minnesota and many others states are hoping that the ban is upheld by the appeals court as they work on their own lawsuits against the government order, given the matter will eventually end at the door of the US Supreme Court.

Enterprise in America has embraced immigrant talent\u2014from YouTube co-founders Jawed Karim (of Bangladeshi-German origin who migrated to the US in 1992) and Taiwan-born Steven Chen to Indian-origin Google CEO Sundar Pichai, immigrants have crafted success stories as industry leaders, especially in tech, and job creators. So, it is also curious that Tesla, founded by Elon Musk (South Africa-born Canadian American), wasn\u2019t a co-signatory to the brief.
