(Fox and KTVU) - A number of high-profile companies have openly expressed their opposition to President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration.
This past weekend, the top executives from Bay Area companies released statements, posted tweets and announced donations to the American Civil Liberties Union as forms of protest against the temporary ban of immigrants from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen.
Here are some of the responses:
