ICE Wants to “Disaffiliate” with Its Union? We Say GTFO
The parent union of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has decided to formally file to disclaim interest in being associated with ICE, after ICE repeatedly expressed interest in leaving its union. But ICE, and cops more generally, should never have been part of unions in the first place. They are not workers but are instead tools of a violent state apparatus under capitalism. We say good riddance to not only ICE, but also to all cops who want to leave their unions. We must demand all cops out of our unions!

ICE Targets International Students
Under the new policy, some international students will be forced to leave the United States under threat of deportation, while others will be forced to return or else forfeit their visa status for the future. And it all boils down to whether or not their universities are online this fall.

Abolish the Police Means Abolish ICE Too
In light of the protests demanding the defunding or the abolition of police, it is imperative that we recognize that local police and ICE are working hand in hand. ICE is detaining protesters and attempting to deport them. We need to abolish both ICE and the police.
