MOUNTAIN VIEW (KPIX 5) – Silicon Valley tech leaders were responding to President Donald Trumps executive order banning immigrants from seven Muslim countries.

Google ordered some of its personnel traveling overseas to head home.

Bloomberg is reporting the company told 100 employees to return to the United States immediately over concerns they would be banned from reentering the country under the President’s executive order.

The 90-day ban applies to travelers from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia and Libya and includes American residents holding green cards. Many fear the list could get longer.

Already dozens of immigrants were detained and removed from planes en route to the U.S., and travelers are being detained upon arrival, as well.

Meantime, the American Civil Liberties Union is going to court to try and block the deportation of anyone stranded at a U.S. airport under the new immigration order.

    All this treason by public officials is outrageous. They need to be prosecuted for it.

    Not too worry though: We have new judges coming in.

    Supreme Court judges are nominated by the president…that would be Trump.

    During the Iranian hostage crisis of 1979 to 1981, in which Iran held 52 American diplomats for 444 days, President Jimmy Carter placed retaliatory sanctions on Iran.

    During an April 7, 1980, press conference, Carter instructed his administration to “invalidate all visas issued to Iranian citizens for future entry into the United States, effective today,” according to a transcript of the event kept by the American Presidency Project.
