Immigrants Target ICE Headquarters and Amazon CEO’s Home in D.C. Protests

HeadlineSep 13, 2019

In Washington, D.C., protesters rallied outside the headquarters of Immigration and Customs Enforcement — ICE — on Thursday, denouncing the Trump administration’s anti-immigrant and anti-refugee policies. This is Jasmine Nazarett of the Fair Immigration Reform Movement.

Jasmine Nazarett: “This agency has done nothing but tear immigrant families apart. And the only way that we’re, as a community, as an immigrant community, as Latinos, as people of color — that we’re actually going to be truly free and united in this country that we call home is if Congress stops funding agencies like this, whose only mission is to tear our families apart.”

Activists later marched to the Washington, D.C., home of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to protest the mega online retailer’s decision to continue providing ICE with technology — including a database that helps track and apprehend immigrants.
