NYU Professor Releases Personal Info On Almost 1,600 ICE Agents

Sam Lavigne created a database of ICE employees using LinkedIn, and shared the information via Twitter.

New York, NY – An adjunct professor from New York University created a database of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) employees using the social media platform LinkedIn, and shared it via social media.

Sam Lavigne, whose website lists New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts among his employers, created a database that included the names of 1,595 ICE employees and shared it to his 3,600 followers on Twitter on Tuesday morning, The Daily Caller reported.

“I’ve downloaded and made available the profiles of (almost) everyone on LinkedIn who works for ICE, 1,595 people in total. While I don’t have a precise idea of what should be done with this data set, I leave it here with the hope that researchers, journalists, and activists will find it useful,” Lavigne wrote in a now-deleted Medium blog post, according to The Daily Caller.

The database contains information from the ICE employee’s LinkedIn pages that included their full names, the cities in which they live, and their role at the federal immigration agency.

Within hours, the database had been disseminated by Antifa, an organization that U.S. security agencies have labeled domestic terrorists.

The database was also shared on a Reddit subgroup that encouraged the doxxing of those whom they consider to be “Nazis” or “alt-right.” Doxxing is the practice of spreading someone’s personal information for nefarious purposes.

“Doxxing ICE agents is good and moral,” one Reddit user posted on the database thread, The Daily Caller reported.

Law enforcement, and border patrol officers and agents specifically, have been under attack for enforcing President Donald Trump’s zero tolerance policy along the border, which has resulted in numerous families being separated when the parents were arrested for breaking the law.

Despite the fact that the same laws and policies existed and were enforced under two prior presidential administrations, the current President and his ICE enforcement agents have been demonized and threatened.

On Thursday, President Trump announced he would issue an order to end family separation at the border; however, that order is expected to violate a 1997 consent decree, according to The New York Times.

Lavigne also tweeted a screenshot of ICE’s chief technology officer’s personal Twitter page, including a picture of the official with his son, The Daily Caller reported.

Eventually, the platform where Lavigne published the database removed the page because it violated its terms of service.

“We removed the project because it violates our community guidelines,” a GitHub spokesperson said. “In general, we have policies against use of GitHub for doxxing and harassment, and violating a third party’s privacy.”

However, an Internet archive of the database had already been captured and shared to Antifa followers, The Daily Caller reported.

Someone should hack this jerk's shit and steal his identity and share it all on twitter.

Why? he didn't steal anything. He aggregated data that everyone on LinkedIn knows they share publicly. What you're advocating is a crime.

Print out this jerk's face, LinkedIn info, address and phone number on a flyer, state on it that he objects to guns and violence and loves computers. All publicly available and true. Then take it into gang neighborhoods and post it. Just as legal and dangerous as what he did. Maybe some common sense and common decency will click for the dick breath when he faces those same consequences.

If anything happens to any ICE employees or members of their families, this asshole should be charged as an accomplice. What ever happens to those ICE employees should happen to him multiplied by 1,595!!

“Progressives” aren’t nearly as evolved in common civility as a Neanderthal would be if plucked out of time and dropped into this world of nonsense. And it is mortifying that they are now in positions to teach our children and young adults.

This professor should be held accountable for endangering the lives of ICE Agents and their families. If anything happens to these agents or their families they should be charged as a principal party meaning just like they did it. Why some dumbass would want to do this is beyond me. Another labeled “Snowflake”!!

He is an utter ass......and deserves to be doxxed in turn, and fired by whomever he's employed by, immediately ! He should also be sued by all those he "outed" and held responsible for anything that happens to those people and their families, civilly and criminally !

Looking forward to seeing HIS personal information put out there, including family pictures... Just in case "someone" can use them! How reckless and stupid of this sphincter muscle. He knows damn well that once it is out, it can never be retracted. I really hope he lives to regret this.

Antifa wants to battle I say bring it. After they get shit kicked out of em they run away. They’re a bunch of crybaby pussies.

The professor should be collared for inciting to harm federal agents.

Actions have consequences. This is a lesson that many on the left have yet to learn. School is in session, Mr. Lavigne. (BTW, this is why I am no longer on LinkedIn.)

Life in prison, or death penalty, no access to technology of any kind for this criminal. If any of the ICE employees whose info he shared is harmed in any way, he needs to be charged with the crime(s).

If this info was on Linked In, it was already public, right? So he made public info public? And for this he should die?

God, I hope and pray some federal law enforcement agency puts this communist’s nuts in a vice. If one of my relatives was injured or their property damaged as a result of his actions I can assure you that there would be some very serious payback coming to the little wimp. NYU you better wake up and take some action!

If personal data is put on LinkIn then it becomes public data.

Is it that there is no law in place to apprehend making lists of law enforcement individuals in order to terrorize, or is it too soon after the Obama tenure to start behaving like a nation of laws? This little Soviet wannabe would approve of a good beating and a few years in a gulag, so why deny him?

@LEO0301 Im mostly done here. It has nothing to do with race or political affiliation. I talk and disagree honorably with millenial conservatives all the time. I realize what i really need to change is talking to baby boomers. You are a scourge to the nation and shouldnt act as entitled as you do, because your accomplishments came from the awesome generation before you.

Everyone younger than you is worse off. Before you, every generation strived to make things better for the next generation. That right there should show how useless you are to society. In fact, you're worse than useless. You're actively damaging.

Have fun in your geriatric circlejerk. I'll go level with conservatives whose beliefs benefit more than just themselves.

Hi_estComnDenomn

@realDonaldTrump You don't know what doxxing is. Doxxing definitely isn't gathering publicly available information.

And no one doxxed me. You put a link on the forum that would reveal someone's IP address if anyone clicked it. That would be doxxing. Accessing private information and making it public.

@Hi_estComnDenomn, what he is promoting isn't promoting possible criminal activity against those officers, really? And, if someone does use that information, he is not liable? Apparently your sense of what criminal behavior is, is predicated on Political agenda. But then, we expect that from Bigots, Racist, Anarchist, Nazi's and Communist.
