06 Feb Tech Companies File Amicus Brief Against Immigration Order Under Cover of Super Bowl Sunday
Yesterday, 97 companies filed an amicus brief in opposition to President Trump’s executive order on immigration. The list, which is dominated by the West Coast’s tech industry, includes some of the most liberal companies in our database.
You would think after Uber and Lyft found themselves in the middle of controversy last week over this very issue that companies would want to step away from the politics. However, it seems the leadership for many of these is doubling down on the politicized rhetoric.
Interestingly, the brief was filed on Super Bowl Sunday, a day when most of the country is tuned into events outside of the political arena.
Here are a few of the top examples with links to their scorepages:
