Divesting From The Trump Deportation Machine

#DeportICE is a coalition of advocacy groups striving to make sanctuary protections real in cities and counties across California.

We are doing this by championing a municipal ordinance declaring California’s sanctuary cities will not do business with companies that work to identify, profile, target and detain undocumented California residents for ICE and CPB.

We also ask universities, media outlets, law firms and other large institutions in sanctuary cities to boycott companies in contract with ICE and CPB for data, vetting or detention services.

On this website, you will find a municipal contracting ordinance for sanctuary cities to stop subsidizing the deportation machine, and a boycott  form and petition for institutions and individuals in sanctuary cities to cease doing business with one large ICE data broker, Thomson Reuters.

In the history section, we present some scholarly commentary from other times in recent history when technological tracking and profiling of individuals led to detention, imprisonment, torture and extermination.

On the Resources page, you can print out DeportICE signs and a handout with a list of atrocities committed by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

#DeportICE welcomes fellow advocacy groups to join the coalition and welcomes submissions of information regarding additional data brokers for ICE. We have a Signal Tip Line set up for anonymous contributions.
