If you can join them, you can try beating them, too. Today SpaceX and Tesla signed on to the legal fight against President Donald Trump’s immigration policies, even though the companies’ billionaire CEO, Elon Musk, is a member of Trump’s business advisory council.
SpaceX and Tesla are among 31 additional tech companies joining a friend-of-the-court brief that was filed by nearly 100 companies overnight.
The brief supports a challenge to Trump’s executive order on immigration – a challenge that’s being led by Washington state. The challengers won an initial victory on Feb. 3 when a federal judge issued a temporary restraining order to force a suspension of the president’s immigration ban.
