WikiLeaks published online more than 9,000 names of US Immigration and Customs Enforcement employees, amid mounting criticism of the agency’s separation of migrant families.
The Julian Assange-founded nonprofit said its latest information dump — called ICEPatrol — was important for “increasing accountability.”
“ICE Patrol is an important public resource for understanding ICE programs and increasing accountability, especially in light of the actions taken by ICE lately, such as the separation of children and parents at the US border,” WikiLeaks tweeted.
Its database contains information and photos culled from LinkedIn of 9,243 former and current ICE employees, from interns to senior management. The site is searchable by location, industry, current position, school attended and field of study.
The publication is in response to ICE’s treatment of migrants illegally crossing the southern border, resulting in more than 2,300 children being separated from their families since May.
