They will NEVER be this cheap again
I work for a small company that designs and manufactures a fair amount of high-tech radio gear in the United States. Like, our products are designed in Rochester NY, built in a factory in the SF Bay area, warehoused in NYC, and sold around the world.
We may not be able to do this any more. Pretty much all of our raw materials are going to get 25% more expensive in a few weeks. Only way around it? Move manufacturing out of the US.
I guess this is something a lot of people want, I have some ideas on how federation could work & might hack something together in my free time
tech / ICE / the banality of evil Show more
Since a lot of techies follow me I would like to remind you that places like Vigilant Solutions may try to hire you to work on technology that ICE has contracted. It is your ethical responsibility to not be a cog in the machine.
"As ICE continues to ramp up its inhumane surveillance and detention efforts, I believe it’s important to document what’s happening, and by whom, in any way we can.
To that end, I’ve downloaded and made available the profiles of (almost) everyone on LinkedIn who works for ICE, 1595 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."
Real resistance and solidarity is happening in Portland, OR right now.
As the Trump admin is kidnapping children and terrorizing families, we will do EVERYTHING we can to stop this.
If a similar action is not beimg held near you, make it happen.
Portlanders, get tf doen to 4310 SW Macadam Ave if you can. Stat. We have ppl on the ground. We need bodies. We need support

This is not ok.
None of this is ok.
The system is failing.
They want it to fail, so they can replace it with a revenue generating mechanism.
These ICE camps will become workcamps.
Child Labor will be normal.
They want "illegal" immigrants to stay illegal... that way they have no protections under the law.
An slave servitude class that you can call ice on after the job is done instead of having to pay them.
how dare you.
