58 tech companies join Hawaii in fighting new Trump travel ban

A group of 58 tech companies — including Airbnb, Lyft, Square, and Twillio — have signed an amicus brief in support of the state of Hawaii's challenge to President Trump's new travel ban executive order.

Big names missing: A bunch of companies that filed papers opposing the first ban are noticeably absent from this brief, including Apple, Google and Microsoft.

From Airbnb policy chief Chris Lehane: "Barring people from entering our country because of where they're from is wrong. Our community's mission is to allow anyone to belong anywhere, and we will take a stand when we see policies that conflict with our values."

The hearing for the lawsuit is set for later on Wednesday.
