Silicon Valley Panics over Immigration Ban

A Reuters report today shows Silicon Valley executives are in panic mode over US President Donald Trump’s executive order halting the refugee program for 120 days. The order also bars Syrian refugees indefinitely, and places a 90 day suspension on visas from 7 other countries to the US. Start ups and venture partners say businesses will suffer and start ups will not be able to be created because their foreign workers will not be able to travel in and out of the US. No contingency plan or willingness of Silicon Valley companies to hire American workers was mentioned in the report.
