Apple Considering Legal Action Over Trump’s Immigration Ban

Apple is considering taking legal action against the highly controversial executive order signed by President Trump that bars immigrants from several predominately Muslim countries from entering the United States.

America’s largest corporation will continue to press the White House to reverse the order, Apple CEO Tim Cook told The Wall Street Journal in an interview after decrying Trump’s move over the weekend in an internal memo. He joins other high-profile Silicon Valley executives including Alphabet’s Sergey Brin in protesting the order, which threatens to stem the flow of immigrant talent the industry relies on.

As soon as he got wind some of Apple’s employees are directly targeted by the executive order that bars Muslin nationals from seven countries from entering the U.S. for the next 90 days, Tim Cook compiled an e-mail informing immigrant workers legal teams are currently investigating the issue, scouting for resolves.

“More than any country in the world, this country is strong because of our immigrant background and our capacity and ability as people to welcome people from all kinds of backgrounds. That’s what makes us special,” Cook told The Wall Street Journal. “We ought to pause and really think deeply through that.”

Apple’s CEO stated that neither the company nor the nation can move forward without valuable resources offered by immigrants. Via the written declaration, Tim Cook declared he did not support the Trump administration’s policy and shared his concerns regarding Apple employees directly affected by the executive order.

Last week, President Trump put a four-month hold on allowing refugees into the US and temporarily barred travelers from Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somali, Sudan, Iraq and Iran. According to Trump the move is aimed at “protecting our own citizens and border”, and has sparked widespread international criticism.

    Comment: Cook dear,
    more than any country in the world, US is strong because of anglican church of england and partially protestant church of scotland ( i.e: queen Elizabeth II predecessors incl. and no limitation to Tudor or Stewart family members running the churches ), settling in the americas as colonizers and fighting for control of the land and against other European countries.
    Churches making then good use of resources ( incl. and with no limitation to ” immigrants ” ) in the continent of course.,, and becoming a rich and wealthy land however ending up with colonies demanding independence. Churches however always so attentive to ensure the world and for centuries to come, “Americans ” would always achieve full understanding being independent and maintain independence, doesn’t come free of charge, you’ve got to fight for independence and for winning of a war… to show and corroborate both determination and expertise when running a ” independent ” land.

    a land that has now become rich and wealthy and also independent, where almost everyone yet willing to migrate to america was often garbage of europe european societies of aristocrats did not want around in the old continent , garbage of europe and related offspring were and are lice of any society when hiding and when idlers, loafers, slouch’, addicted to extortion and humans traffic as well as to the establishing of Racketeering Influenced Corrupt Organizations, and then making efforts for messing around with independent north-america.
    Garbage of europe incl. but with no limitation to irish rackets for smuggling and slavery system in southern america, italians maffia with their dope, guns and prostitution rackets, also polish and romanian pretending being either irish or italians, and altogether getting america to a war causing secession ( division ), allowing garbage of europe ( still immigrants ) to take advantage of chaos they created, aiming to achieving the taking over of the rich and wealthy and independent land of america and when assisted by roman catholic church clergy.
