Trump Immigration Ban Is Harmful to the Tech Economy

Silicon Valley exports technology and imports the world’s best talent. That is how it has helped grow the nation’s economy and boosted its competitive advantage. President Trump’s executive order banning immigrants from some Muslim countries sent shock waves through the tech industry over the weekend because it was a loud and clear message to the world that the United States’ doors are now closed, and xenophobia and bigotry are the new rules of law.

It is no wonder that executives at almost every major technology company, including Alphabet, Facebook and Apple, have made statements defending immigrants and distancing their companies from the president. These companies are worried about their survival and the future of the country.
