The human rights crisis at our southern border is powered by a tech giant here in Seattle.
Amazon servers host Palantir, the company that provides “mission-critical technology” that enables ICE to find, detain, and deport immigrants. Amazon also has contracts directly with the Department of Homeland Security for cloud services supporting immigration enforcement. Seattle is a sanctuary city — yet the City and its largest employer are making billions from building the deportation machine that is tearing families apart and keeping kids in cages.
Migrant justice is climate justice. As the climate crisis leads to more extreme storms, droughts, dwindling water supplies and food shortages, people are being forced to leave their homelands to survive. Thousands of these climate migrants are now detained in inhumane conditions at the US border.
