In early 2017, an undisclosed number of Google employees discussed via internal messages ways that they could manipulate search results in protest of President Trump’s travel ban, reports the Wall Street Journal.
They suggested surfacing links to pro-immigration organizations and ways to contact government agencies when you searched for terms like “Islam” or” “Muslim.” 
Google told the Journal that none of the plans were implemented.

The Journal said it reviewed emails that show Google employees proposed several ways to “leverage” the company’s search engine to direct users to pro-immigration organizations and contact government agencies, especially when searching for terms like “Islam” or “Muslim.” See the rest of the story at Business Insider
