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

SandyMalone

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.

@SoberProgressive If an agent put personal information on a publicly available website, how is this guy to blame?

Also, how old are you? That will determine how i respond to you from now on.

@Hi_estComnDenomn , doesn't matter how old I am, but their and your intent does. If the intent is to do harm to those officers, he / she is liable. And, supporting such acts is a crime. But, we should ignore that because? Because they are your friend, or they have the same agenda as you? Maybe you should grow up, be responsible. Just kidding, you are not capable. After all, you are entitled to be an idiot. You've proven that over and over, and I hope you stay that way. Until the time comes for real men / women come to visit you with a warrant.

If one Ice agent is hurt because of his exposing them, they need to try him for the crime inflicted as the accomplice

@SoberProgressive His intent was to gather data for journalists, resesrchers, and activists. He said it plain as day. Anything else you're saying is speculation.

And it is important how old you are. If you're a boomer, I doubt the vast majority of just about anything you say. If you belong to any other generation, you just might be speaking from a place that concerns more than just your personal well-being. Not at all true for the average boomer.

@Hi_estComnDenomn - what's the matter bitch boy, are you having a bad day? My generation does not feel entitled. That would be your generation and the current one. Like most people your age, you want to blame your inadequacies on others. The reason things were so screwed up was because of eight years of Barrack Hussain Obama. Thankfully Trump has come along to save the day.

There is a reason this information is kept secret. What this traitor did was to not only put the lives of federal agents at risk, but their wives and children as well. He should be charged with felony rendering criminal assistance. He is a treasonous stoat of a human being and should be removed from society for a few decades.

@Hi_estComnDenomn - what happened to you while you were away? Did some 60 year old guy whoop your ass, leaving you crying for "momma"? All I know, Cheech, is that you are constantly being put in your place on this site. You frequently make comments that are easily disputed. In fact, before you disappeared after getting you ass whooped by a 60 year old white guy, I provided facts from reputable websites that contradicted statements you made. Now all of a sudden you decided to attack the baby boomers because your generation is so fucked up. Maybe if you all stayed off of your cell phones and computers for a few minutes, you would notice there is a world out there to explore. Instead your generation needs their safe spaces because even the slightest criticism sends you into a tizzy. So go away crybaby, this website will be better off without you lame ass.

@LEO0301 1 Of course you mention technology as the problem, you entitled cancer. That's your fear of not understanding this world and having it pass you by.

And no one has whooped my ass. I've just realized practicing ageism will be the only way we, no matter what party, can start acting like leaders of the free world again. You people don't contribute anything to society.

Look at the nation's shift in political spectrum. You don't even see the replacement happening right in front of you. I suppose you will see in November.

@Hi_estComnDenomn - now that's funny. I have no problem with technology so long as it actually improves our living conditions. Next time you're out and about take a look at the number of people totally lost in their cell phones. It's gotten so bad most states enacted laws preventing you pathetic millennials from driving while texting on your cell phones. Kids nowadays don't even go outside to play. They sit in front of their computers playing games about killing other people. Yeah, that's a healthy lifestyle, don't you think? Most of your generation sit on their asses doing nothing, leaching off of people like me. You're a pathetic troll who lives in a delusional world.

@Hi_estComnDenomn - I have to be honest....I am happy I won't be around in a few years to see what your generation has done to this country. Obama was just a sample of what we can expect when your generation takes over. I feel for those who don't fit the stereotype.

@LEO0301 Many of us in all 3 established generations below you can't wait either. You've accomplished nothing to better anyone but yourselves. If you believe I'm wrong, please tell me what boomers have accomplished that's not on the back of your parents.

@ Hi_estComnDenomn, and you know it is only that? how? He could say it was to have a party, and no one would have reason to believe that. You can't prove that was the reason either. BTW, Love how your Bigotry comes out. Age discrimination isn't much different than any other discrimination. But then, Progressives have a long history of being Bigots. And, trying to include yourself as being part of everyone of a common interest seems disingenuous. Not so much an uncommon act by pedophiles, perverts and other extremest. Well, you are a Progressive, we are use to that.

@LEO0301 What on this list defines me having a job or not? I'm a designer.

Oh wait, you think the Internet is the reason i have a job. No, see, i illustrate as well. I just happen to do web design and graphic design because that's the medium we consume now. If i was born 20 years earlier, then I'd be making digital illustrations for laser discs and such. If i was born 40 years earlier, I'd be doing illustrations for storefront signage and book covers. If i was born 50 years earlier, id be setting type faces for print ads in a newspaper.

@Hi_estComnDenomn - I hate to burst your bubble, Nancy, but you said " If you believe I'm wrong, please tell me what boomers have accomplished that's not on the back of your parents. " Now that I have once again proven you wrong by providing factual information, you make the personal attack in an attempt to make us all forget how wrong you were. LOL BTW I thought you promised to go far away, yet here you are.

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@LEO0301 Ah, so you pick and choose what arguments to defend? Because i said a bunch more before that, that somehow, you didn't touch.

Now, what exactly did you invent that gives me a job again?

SoberProgressive
SoberProgressive

@Hi_estComnDenomn, Actually, you don't. Claiming you do, and proving you do, is two different things. After all, it's all up to interpretation. Intent is also. And, to say that Progressive is owned by a movement that truly doesn't act in a manner of progress shows that you are truly dis-ingenuousness in your thoughts and actions. So, telling me to quiet down only reveals that you have the tendency to want to rule like the slave owner (being the Bigot). But, that would be natural for a Progressive. Me, I actually believe in Progress. And, that isn't dependent on slavery or enslavement.

@Hi_estComnDenomn, what's progressive about removing peoples rights? As if that means progress. After all, that is the goal of Progressive-ism. Removal of our Constitutional Rights. As to word salad, nothing I said was not understandable, and you can't disprove anything I said. Apparently, you actually don't want to address it. Or, can't.

@Hi_estComnDenomn I see you can't do anything but repeat your ignorant remarks. Even when they have already been answered. If that's the best you can do, you obviously haven't got the ability to understand common sense. But then, you have never shown any in the first place.

@SoberProgressive If you'd answer instead of bringing other shit up, I'd stop asking. How long do you Boomers think your tricks work? I'm not a child. Every time you're backed into a corner you attack the person and not the question.

So, what exactly in your thinking makes you progressive?

@LEO0301 A felon is someone convicted of a felony. I've never been convicted of a felony.

Bending words to meet your personal definition. Baby boomer magic tricks.

LEO0301
LEO0301

@Hi_estComnDenomn - it's only because you weren't caught. You admitted to committing a felony, so although that might not meet the definition of a felon, in my mind you always will be. What is maybe not so surprising is the fact you are able to justify your actions. Typical of your kind, no?

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@LEO0301 well being caught and convicted is a major crux of being a felon, so like i said, I'm not a felon.

And I'm confused, which "felony" are you referring to? The one where I kicked the shit out of a white supremacist in Anaheim a couple of years ago? Ask him how he's doing at your next rally. Also ask him how it went when he, at 60, picked a fight with someone half his age. I guess he thought he wouldn't get his ass kicked with his friends around.

@Hi_estComnDenomn, What makes you think Progressives are about Progress? ROFLMFAO! They aren't. That's like you saying you are about equality, or Social Justice. What a joke! The only thing you have come up with is attacking me with assumptions of weather or not I'm a Boomer or not. Vapid thinking on your part doesn't constitute much of an argument. In fact, it's not an argument at all. And, all you have done is deflect from every thing I've said. So much for your ignorant remarks. After all, that's all you have offered. Or, should I say Bigoted Remarks!
