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!

Last week, the Biden administration announced that it was formally reimplementing the program after a decision by the Supreme Court. The new policy, negotiated with the Mexican government, will include new sectors of migrants in the program and expand to new cities along the border, putting thousands of migrants’ lives at risk.
