Tech:NYC Statement on Updated Immigration Ban Executive Order

Lifting the ban on visa and green card holders doesn't change the fundamental problem with this policy, which is why more than 2,000 tech leaders in New York came together so quickly to sign a letter opposing it to President Trump: when you close the door to refugees and immigrants from certain countries, you're telling all immigrants that they are not welcome here. We need and want job-creating entrepreneurs and the people who can help grow companies to come here in NYC and across the United States, and this is exactly the wrong move.
