BREAKING: #JewsAgainstICE, immigrants, and their allies are disrupting the Amazon Job Fair in Boston, MA.

We are asking job-seekers to avoid applying for positions at Amazon and its subsidiaries until the org breaks its contracts with ICE and DHS. #NeverAgainIsNow #NoTech4ICE
IBM built systems that enabled the Nazis to track, detain, deport and ultimately murder millions of people. We wish people had taken action to shut down IBM to prevent the Holocaust and so we are doing today what we wish people had done for the Jews in the 1930s. #NeverAgainIsNow
IBM sold tech to Nazis.
Amazon sells tech to ICE.
Never Again means #NoTech4ICE.
Never Again means no business with Amazon.
Never Again means don't build for ICE!
Which side are you on?

#JewsAgainstICE and allies with @CloseTheCampsBA are marching on @PalantirTech to say no to providing ICE tech to terrorize families. Watch live now:
@CloseTheCampsBA @PalantirTech "No human being will ever be illegal."

@CloseTheCampsBA @PalantirTech This morning @NeverAgainActn @JFREJNYC @ConMijente shut down @PalantirHQ NYC to demand they stop collaborating with ICE. Now we are at @PalantirTech in the Bay because we have seen this before. How many of our people would have lived if IBM hadn't helped the Nazis? #NoTechForICE

BOSTON: We’re gathering at the New England Holocaust Memorial, getting ready to march against the businesses in our community making money helping ICE persecute immigrants.

This is a crisis, and we have to act like it #NeverAgainIsNow

We were raised with the stories of our ancestors and our people. We don’t make comparisons to the Holocaust lightly.

What we see happening to immigrants of color in the U.S. looks like the early stages of what happened to us and others in Nazi Germany.

ICE and CBP can’t do their evil work alone. They rely on the greed of corporations who see our immigrant neighbors living in fear & living in cages, and see dollar signs instead of human beings.

It’s up to us to make it stop: #NoBusinessWithICE!

We just found out Palantir has renewed its ICE contract thru 2022. 😡😡😡

Amounts redacted, but they'll make MILLIONS.

Workplace raids, family members arrested at the border, protests every week, worker concerns—& Palantir is doubling down?!

Palantir helped arrest at least *443* ppl in a 90-day period, we revealed this year, helping ICE nab family members of kids who crossed border alone, including families who tried to claim them.

That's apparently not enough for them to stop working w/ICE.…
Hundreds of academics got Palantir dropped as a sponsor of a prestigious privacy conference at Cal. The academic community came together to say they will not be associated with an enabler of terror.

That's not enough for them to stop working w/ICE.…

BREAKING: We're releasing a new report: "The War Against Immigrants: Trump's Tech Tools Powered by Palantir" today.

It's a comprehensive look at Palantir’s work & the web of personal connections that make it all happen, all centered around Peter Thiel.
Yday ICE arrested 680 people in raids of food processing plants in Mississippi. The raids were a result of a year long HSI investigation & led to 100s of family separations.

Palantir says they don't separate families (that they help HSI w/investigations, not ERO).
However, yesterday's raids were carried out by HSI, casting doubt on Palantir's position and the companies role in family separations.

These raids are just the latest cruel implementation of the war against immigrations, powered by Palantir's technology.

Trump’s war on immigrants is escalating.

Days after the deadly attack on Latinos in El Paso, hours before ‘offering condolences’ to the people he helped target, Trump gave the OK to carry out the largest single-state raid in our nation’s history. [1/x]…
Today, that war shattered nearly 700 families, more than 700 lives.

It’s no coincidence that the raids took place across 7 sites in areas that are hard to reach, where there is little to no infrastructure in place to help deal with the aftermath. [2/x]…
Our community is scared, tired, and enraged. And as we grieve, we also support one another to recharge and keep fighting.

We have a long road ahead. But we are committed. [3/5]…

This is about to be a thread to educate a CEO about Border Patrol and why people want to #CloseTheCamps and why workers are saying #WeWontBeComplicit.
I'm GRATEFUL to the @ogilvy employees who, like the #WayfairWalkout, don't want to be part of what's happening at the border. The hashtag #dontlookaway is aimed at all of us. #NoTechForICE could also be #NoPRforTheCamps
After 3 weeks of press coverage detailing how @ogilvy recruits for the border patrol agency running the camps, @jseifert79, the CEO, told workers raising concerns that "I don’t have enough information to indict this [organization]."…

Welcome to today’s Twitter chat! We’ll break down how @AWScloud & @PalantirTech power ICE’s deportation-detention machine w/ our partners: @ConMijente @CosechaMovement @StandUpNash @LaColectiVA703 @MaketheRoadNY @DenshoProject @popdemoc @UndocuBlack & @CAAAV!

In light of news that ICE used facial recog software to mine state driver databases & track down immigrants—it's extra crucial to break down the relationship between ICE, @PalantirTech & @awscloud (which houses Rekognition, @Amazon's facial recog software) #AmazonVSImmigrants
More on ICE's mining of state driver databases using facial recognition software here 👇 #AmazonVSImmigrants #NoTechForICE…

The ACLU just revealed the full breadth of ICE's contract w/@ThomsonReuters.

Guess what? That information is integrated with @PalantirTech. The gov. EXPLICITLY demanded that the Reuters program be compatible w/Palantir.

Our report released last year shows how. #NoTechforICE
Thousands of ICE agents have access to BILLIONS of license plate records from across the country—even from sanctuary cities

They use this info to track people in real time.

Those license plates are fed into Palantir to "narrow in and locate persons & assets of interest."
This is by design.

When ICE contracted Thomson-Reuters, it SPECIFICALLY required the database be compatible w/Palantir so it could be used by ICE agents on the ground.

ICE agents use Palantir to "store, search, analyze, & visualize" data to target immigrants for deportation.

Our report details how firms like @Amazon @Microsoft @Palantir profit from detention & deportations.

We show how tech lobbying —> massive gov. contracts —> storing biometric data on millions & providing tech for deportations #NoTechForICE
.@Amazon is *far ahead* of any other tech company in storing sensitive data—it has 204 FEDRamp authorizations, compared to Microsoft's 150, Oracle's 34, Salesforce's 31, & Google's 27.

It & other tech co's gave $250K to Congress, then won contracts to privatize gov data storage.
They’re part of a new #CloudIndustrialComplex that lobbies legislators in Washington, DC to prioritize cloud storage for sensitive data, resulting in a huge migration of sensitive data to private cloud firms like Amazon, which get multi-million contracts to store the data.
