US President Donald Trump's sudden executive order on immigration has been resulted in an outrage of sorts. All the CEOs of various tech giants have gone all out against Trump’s decision and have voiced their anger on various social media platforms.
Google's India-born CEO Sundar Pichai criticised the President’s move saying it will create "barriers" to bringing great talent to the US.
Pichai, in an email to staff, said that the US ban on foreign nationals from seven Muslim-majority countries will hit at least 187 Google employees.
Netflix Chief Executive Reed Hastings called it "a sad week" and added, "It is time to link arms together to protect American values of freedom and opportunity."
Here is how US giants reacted on Trump’s recent controversial move:

The Executive Order's humanitarian and economic impact is real and upsetting. We benefit from what refugees and immigrants bring to the U.S. https://t.co/HdwVGzIECt— jack (@jack) January 28, 2017
