These companies wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for immigrants

Apple, Oracle, and eBay are among one of those companies which are build by either first or second generation Americans from a country President Trump has now banned immigration from.

Had the father of the late Steve Jobs, founder of Apple, tried to enter the country today, he would have been turned away. He is Syrian.

Oracle co-founder Bob Miner is the son of Iranian immigrants. And eBay is the brainchild of Pierre Omidyar, whose Iranian parents came to the U.S. from France in the 1970s, according to a 2011 report from the Partnership for a New American Economy.

Omidyar among first tech executives to publicly chide Trump’s decision to ban immigration from seven majority-Muslim nations Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yamen – this decision affected estimated 134 million people.

He called Trump’s executive order “simple bigotry.”

Trump’s anti-immigration tone sparked the energy statements across the business community, particularly in tech. Execs and commentators called out important contributions which are made by immigrants in the American economy.

A large number of companies whose brands are household names were built by immigrants.

Co-founder Yahoo Jerry Yang is from Taiwan. Alexander Graham Bell – Person who invented the telephone and built the company that transformed into AT&T and Verizon was a Scottish.

The late Andrew Grove person who transformed Intel into global tech giant was a Hungarian. Sergey Brin – Co-Founder of Google was born in Russia. Procter & Gamble’s co-founders were from England and Ireland.

A slew of other corporate powerhouses was built by the children of immigrants.

Jeff Bezos creator of Amazon is the son of Cuban father. Wall and Roy (Disney brothers) were born to a Canadian father. Both parents of McDonald’s burger chain founder were immigrants from Ireland.
