I urge the city of Austin to condemn the president's executive order to put a hold on immigration from seven Middle Eastern countries. Our economy depends on innovation, much of which is generated by foreign-born engineers and business people. I have worked in various high tech companies, with a high proportion of people from the targeted countries. I can say without a doubt that product developement would go much slower without their contributions.
