[February 07, 2017]
(Reuters) - Elon Musk's Tesla Inc
and SpaceX on Monday joined a legal brief filed by businesses opposed to
President Donald Trump's order restricting immigration from seven
Muslim-majority countries, according to a court filing.
Musk agreed to become part of Trump's business advisory council in
December, and has advocated discussing issues directly with the
president. Uber chief executive Travis Kalanick quit the council last
week amid mounting pressure over Trump's immigration policies.

'companies' in first paragraph.)
