and What You Can Do
Immigrant justice organizers like Mijente and Bay Resistance are getting wise to target business interests that help run ICE infrastructure. For instance, the online mega-retailer Amazon is a key part of the conditions that make ICE raids possible, by offering the underlying database technology and facial recognition software to ICE and related agencies.
