More than 125 companies have joined in on a court brief opposing President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration.

The amicus brief – a document that is filed by people or groups that are not a directly a party to a court action, but have an interest in it – was first filed this weekend by 96 mostly tech companies. Thirty-one companies joined in on that brief Monday, bringing the total number of signers to 127.  

According to The Associated Press, about 58 percent of the engineers and other high-skill employees in Silicon Valley were born outside the U.S.

The president’s travel ban went into effect on Jan. 27. The executive order called for a suspension of the U.S. refugee admissions program for 120 days, a ban on Syrian refugees entering the country and a ban on entry of refugees from seven majority-Muslim countries, among other immigration restrictions.

A federal appeals court temporarily halted the ban on Friday, allowing immigrants to come into the country. The court will listen to federal attorneys and attorneys for the states of Washington and Minnesota, the states that asked for a temporary restraining order, when a hearing is held on Tuesday.

Here’s a list of the companies that have signed the amicus brief.
