In a Facebook post, founder and CEO Brian Chesky, writes that the company will help provide free housing to refugees and others who are denied travel to the U.S. and are stuck in a country or city other than their own.

A day later the company launched a website allowing hosts to offer up their homes.

Airbnb is just one of several tech companies sparring with the President over the sudden immigration ban.

Netflix, Facebook, Google and Apple have all expressed concern, saying their companies wouldn't be possible without immigrants.

Even Twitter, Trump's favorite social media platform, has weighed in and pledged to stand with immigrants, always.
