Donald Trump Muslim ban: Google, Apple and other tech giants mysteriously drop off list of companies opposing order


SHAFAQNA – Companies including Apple, Facebook and Google have mysteriously stopped opposing Donald Trump’s Muslim ban.

The first time it was proposed, almost every major tech company publicly filed briefs against the order. But after it was brought back in a slightly less extreme form, the biggest companies have dropped their opposition to it.

A group of 58 technology companies, including Airbnb, Lyft and Dropbox, filed a “friend of the court” brief in the case saying the second order hurt their ability to recruit the best talent from around the world.

But that was much shorter than the initial list of companies, which included Apple, Facebook and Google – which filed a brief opposing the first ban in a different court challenge brought by Washington state, which is ongoing.
