Google CEO Sundar Pichai

In a memo to Google staffers, Pichai wrote, "It's painful to see the personal cost of this executive order on our colleagues. We’re upset about the impact of this order and any proposals that could impose restrictions on Googlers and their families, or that could create barriers to bringing great talent to the U.S."

On Friday, Pichai ordered Google staff members traveling abroad to return to the U.S., and said at least 187 employees could be stopped from entering the U.S. Google also created a $4 million fund -- $2 million from the company itself and $2 million donated by employees -- to support organizations that are responding to President Trump's immigration orders.
