The CEO of the Bellevue, Wash.-based company, Dara Khosrowshahi, also has a unique personal perspective, as a native of Iran who immigrated to the U.S. as a kid with his family after the Iranian Revolution. As the longtime leader of a company with a market value of more than $18 billion, he’s an example of the benefits of immigration for the country. In an internal email to Expedia’s employees this morning, obtained by GeekWire, the Expedia CEO spoke out against President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration. The order prevents citizens of Syria, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen and Libya from entering the U.S. for 90 days, suspends all refugee immigration for 120 days, and bars Syrian refugees from entering the country indefinitely. “I believe that with this Executive Order, our President has reverted to the short game,” Khosrowshahi told Expedia employees in the message. “The U.S. may be an ever so slightly less dangerous as a place to live, but it will certainly be seen as a smaller nation, one that is inward-looking versus forward thinking, reactionary versus visionary.” Get the full story at GeekWire Read also "Amazon and Expedia Join Lawsuit to Stop Trump’s Immigration Ban" at Fortune
