The number of tech companies opposing the immigration ban in the US has now grown to 97. The initial list was made up of Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, Uber, Twitter and Netflix but with the addition of names like Amazon, Dropbox, Yelp, Airbnb and Salesforce.

Well a federal judge halted the ban over the weekend and this has since angered the US president Trump who has personally taken the fight to the judge on Twitter telling Americans to hold the judge accountable should terrorist enter into the US. The US government through the Justice department has since appealed the ruling in the 9th Circuit by arguing that by doing that, the judge didn’t take into consideration separation of powers even though many in the President’s party think there are other ways of securing the country without having a Muslim ban. You’ll recall that Mr. Trump had temporarily banned citizens of 9 Muslim majority nations including Africa’s Libya and Sudan from entering the US until the vetting process was changed.

By taking advantage of the Super bowl in the US, tech companies under the #weaccept hashtag have said the administration was too hasty in implementing the ban without consulting with the corporations on how best to go about it. But this is not deterring President Trump who is now reportedly looking for ways to change the work visa for foreigners that tech companies rely on to recruit from overseas.

But analysts believe that the fight could get to the Supreme Court and if it does, the government could win. Remember Mr. Trump is about appointing the 9th member of the court after Justice Scalia passed away last year. But who knows?

Here’s a full list of companies joining the fight against the Trump ban. The list was put together by TechCrunch
