For several years, Johns Hopkins has held contracts with US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to provide medical training to ICE officers. TRU is a member of the Hopkins Coalition Against ICE, an association of faculty, students, and other Hopkins community members calling for the University to terminate its contracts with ICE, an agency that, in its brief 18-year history, has been responsible for family separations, the negligent deaths of dozens of adults and children, and turning to illegal measures to create a discriminatory climate of fear and harassment. As a union, we feel compelled to actively oppose the university’s multi-million-dollar profiteering from an agency which actively harms members of our community and is used to systematically force undocumented people into underpaid and exploitative working conditions.
