As they would say on the street, Donald Trump and his antics are “f*cking the money up.”

Donald Trump, with all of his divisive language, offensive remarks, controversial tweets and all around unstable behavior, was accepted and tolerated by much of corporate America because he had yet to affect their bottom line.

But after attempting to pass an asinine Muslim travel ban in January via an executive order, he set off a domino effect of other ethnicities and immigrants becoming worried about their citizen status in America. Immigration has been a key factor to the success of much of America’s leading companies as they’ve been able to recruit employees from all over the globe and develop relationships with other countries.

Trump’s travel ban, and other similar acts that many fear will follow, stand to disrupt many companies’ business. Which is why 96 of them have banded together against the ban.

Gizmodo reports that 96 companies have filed legal documents that object to President Trump’s Muslim ban. While we can assume they’ve done this because it’s the “right” thing to do. They’re also making it clear that it’s messing with their money.

The brief states:

“The Order represents a significant departure from the principles of fairness and predictability that have governed the immigration system of the United States for more than fifty years. And the Order inflicts significant harm on American business, innovation, and growth as a result.”

Many of the businesses listed in the in the brief are tech companies. But there are some older, non-tech companies included as well. Noticeably is Elon Musk’s Tesla. Musk sits on Trump’s advisory board and insists on staying there because he feels he can change things for the better from the inside.
