As the subject matter over the Trump’s Muslim immigration ban worsens, the tech giants based inside the Silicon Valley and outside it, within the US have started to throw resistance to the concerning Trump’s Executive order that was passed last Friday.
Airbnb, the home-sharing service based out of US, announcing free housing for anybody affected by the Trump’s immigration ban, has gone a step further.

“Open doors brings all of US together. Closing doors further divides US. Let’s all find ways to connect people, not separate them,” the Airbnb co-founder and CEO tweeted. “Not allowing countries or refugees into America is not right, and we must stand with those who are affected.”
Brian Chesky, the co-founder and CEO at Airbnb, has proved to be one of the most concrete examples of the high-heads from the Silicon Valley have to stood up against the said ban. Google’s recent crisis campaign are also among the other notable examples of resistances from the Silicon Valley against the said executive order.
The newly elected US President Donald Trump signed an executive order (EO) last Friday, which suspended the entry of all refugees to the US for three months. The EO stalled the admission of refugees to US from Syria indefinitely along with the denying entry to residents from the other Muslim countries of Iraq, Syria, Iran, Yemen, Sudan, Libya, and Somalia, for three months.
