Lyft and Airbnb are among the first tech companies to publicly oppose Trump's revamped executive order that goes into effect next week.

Lyft CEO Logan Green said in a statement:

"Lyft stands firmly against this order. We will continue to speak out and take action when the values of our community are put at risk. John and I are meeting with the Executive Director of the ACLU on Wednesday to discuss how we can further support their efforts."

Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky tweeted:

It's not surprising that Silicon Valley companies are speaking out against Trump's latest 90-day travel ban, as nearly 100 signed onto an amicus brief opposing his initial travel ban barring travel from seven Muslim-majority countries. The new executive order removes Iraq from that list and does not subject existing visa holders to the ban. The new order also includes a 120-day ban on refugees entering the U.S.

Who hasn't chimed in: Google, Facebook, Intel, Apple and Microsoft did not immediately comment on the travel ban.

Louisville Metro Police Department said two officers were shot downtown in the Kentucky city late Wednesday, hours after a grand jury announced an indictment in the Breonna Taylor case.

Details: A police spokesperson told a press briefing a suspect was in custody and that the injuries of both officers were not life-threatening. One officer was "alert and stable" and the other was undergoing surgery, he said.

"Not enough": Protesters react to no murder charges in Breonna Taylor case

A grand jury on Wednesday indicted Brett Hankison, one of the Louisville police officers who entered Breonna Taylor's home in March, on three counts of wanton endangerment for firing shots blindly into neighboring apartments.

Details: Angering protesters, the grand jury did not indict any of the three officers involved in the botched drug raid on homicide or manslaughter charges related to the death of Taylor.
