It’s been suggested to me that I put a thread I recently did on companies working with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency in a separate, more permanent place in case the original thread gets taken down. To that end, here is a woefully incomplete list (with sources!) of some of the companies making huge profits off the suffering of undocumented immigrants:

Ingenesis (@InGenesisInc): a “workforce solutions provider” which was the recipient of a contract worth up to $388,492,301 to provide “medical staffing support services” for ICE.

Trailboss Enterprises, Inc.: The transportation company received a contract worth $107,676,347 to provide detention transport services to ICE.

In addition to these companies (with a few repeats), here is a list of 15 companies who were working with ICE at least as recently as 2018 from an article by Julia Glum (@SuperJulia) originally published in Money:
Northeastern University (@Northeastern)
Ernst & Young
Thomson Reuters (@Reuters)
Motorola Solutions (@MotorolaUS)
Deloitte (@Deloitte)

Shaming alone won’t work — companies don’t have consciences. And as you might’ve been able to tell, lots of these companies don’t really do PR; they’re comfortable being in the shadows because their customers are all governments. But we can absolutely still put pressure on them. None of the ghouls getting rich from US concentration camps deserve a moment’s peace, and their information is all over the Internet. All these companies have addresses. Boycott, protest, shame, whatever the fuck it takes.

I encourage you all to do your own digging (this website is a great resource for government contracts, and I’ve even queued up the search for you to filter contracts awarded by ICE that include fiscal year 2019) and then do whatever you can to make life a little harder for the profiteers of human misery running our government and workplaces. It’s been encouraging seeing such strong reactions from you all. We’re not powerless.
