Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg came out against President Trump's immigration ban on Tuesday in a post saying that the executive order defies "the heart and values that define the best of our nation."
"Families have been separated," Sandberg wrote on Facebook. "Frightened children have been detained in airports without their parents. People seeking refuge have been turned away and sent back to the danger they just managed to flee. This is not how it should be in America."
Sandberg is the latest in a string of tech executives to publicly speak out in recent days against Trump's order, which bans people from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the US for 90 days and the admission of all refugees for 120 days.
On Monday, Google cofounder Sergey Brin told a rally of employees that he was "outraged" by the order, while Netflix CEO Reed Hastings has called it "un-American." Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has said he was "concerned" by the order.
Sandberg explained how her great-great-grandmother immigrated from Lithuania, adding that, "Her courage - and the fact that this country welcomed her - created my family's future."
"Something that hasn't gotten enough attention is how this harsher immigration climate is particularly unforgiving for women," said Sandberg, a well known women's rights activist and "Lean In" author. "Anything that pulls families apart and traumatizes kids has a huge impact on women and their children."
