Hundreds of public servants at Immigration and Customs Enforcement woke up this week to find their names, faces, and locations published by the radical Leftist group ANTIFA.
The anti-fascist organization shared a link on Tuesday that includes names, photos, job titles, cities and links to ICE employees’ LinkedIn profiles. “Some enterprising hero archived the ICE employees listed on LinkedIn,” said the tweet from Nebraska Antifa, which claims to share news on trap hunting fascists and racists in Nebraska, Iowa and Kansas.
The Verge spoke to Lavigne, who is a New York-based artist, saying that he was “just trying to pose the question” of who is responsible for implementing ICE policies.
“I’ve downloaded and made available the profiles of (almost) everyone on LinkedIn who works for ICE, 1,595 people in total. While I don’t have a precise idea of what should be done with this data set, I leave it here with the hope that researchers, journalists, and activists will find it useful,” Lavigne wrote in his original Medium post, according to a cache visible through Google search at the time of writing.
Doxing and harassing targets is a favored tactic of ANTIFA, who many consider to be a domestic terror organization.
