1) stick to what you know, build the best darn kernel in the world
2) Pres. Clinton (state of the union address) spoke of the dangers of illegal immigration and the need to protect the countries borders (youtube Bill Clinton state of the union address + illegal immigration)
3) Pres. Obama listed these same seven countries and placed them on a list of temporarily banning immigration (again duckduckgo it)
4) nothing about this executive order will affect the development of the Linux Kernel or the development of Linux as it occurs via cyberspace, iirc, git, etc...
5) You can't have it both ways, if you choose to remain quiet when one party is in office (doing the same or similar things) then you lose your chance to object when the other party does the same or similar thing. Protest what is wrong, not because a different group is doing it.
6) Nothing from this ruling would have prevented Linus from emigrating to USA
PS: The Statue of Liberty had nothing to do with Immigration, it was a dedication from France honoring the Founding of the USA, the poem engraved at the base of the Statue was added in 1903 as a way to raise money. The tablet she is holding is engraved with the founding date ("JULY IV MDCCLXXVI" – July 4, 1776).
1) Irelivent. Just like all major tech companys they need to move their experts around the free world. Many of them complained even Apple. As I understand it Redhat by far the largest contribuor to the Linux Kernel has bases though out the US.
2) You mention illegal immigration. I don't think anyone agrees with that, it's illegal. or are you saying Mrs Clinton was going to do the same thing as Trump? The reason the Advocate General said what Trump was doing maybe illegal was because we were talking about people with legal rights to enter and refugees.
3) I did DDG it. Major differences. Read about them here. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fac ... a-in-2011/?

5) Not sure what your saying but it sounds like your talking about 3)
In 1956, an Act of Congress officially renamed Bedloe's Island as Liberty Island, a change advocated by Bartholdi generations earlier. The act also mentioned the efforts to found an American Museum of Immigration on the island, which backers took as federal approval of the project, though the government was slow to grant funds for it. Nearby Ellis Island was made part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument by proclamation of President Lyndon Johnson in 1965. In 1972, the immigration museum, in the statue's base, was finally opened in a ceremony led by President Richard Nixon. The museum's backers never provided it with an endowment to secure its future and it closed in 1991 after the opening of an immigration museum on Ellis Island.
