Google Employees Compare ICE, CBP To ‘Nazis During The Holocaust’

Google staffers, claiming the United States Customs and Border Protection and Immigration Customs Enforcement are violating “international human rights law” by “terrorizing” illegal immigrants, are demanding the tech giant blacklist law enforcement agencies from accessing the Google Cloud Platform.

In a petition, titled “Never Again,” accompanied by the hashtag, “#NoGCPforCBP” [No Google Cloud Platform for Customs and Border Protection], Google employees compare the enforcement of U.S. immigration law to the mass murder of Jews during the Holocaust.

The Google petition, published in a report by Medium on Wednesday, argues the genocide of Jews in World War II is no different than how law enforcement agencies in the United States treat illegals.

“US Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) is currently engaged in human rights abuses at the US Southern border,” the Google petition states. “We have only to look to IBM’s role working with the Nazis during the Holocaust to understand the role that technology can play in automating mass atrocity.

“In working with CBP, ICE, or ORR [the Office of Refugee Resettlement], Google would be trading its integrity for a bit of profit, and joining a shameful lineage.”

Any company that provides CBP with cloud services is condoning terrorism and providing “infrastructure for mass atrocity” the petition warns.

“It has recently come to light that CBP is gearing up to request bids on a massive cloud computing contract. The winning cloud provider will be streamlining CBP’s infrastructure and facilitating its human rights abuses,” the staffers wrote. ” We demand that Google publicly commit not to support CBP, ICE, or ORR with any infrastructure, funding, or engineering resources, directly or indirectly, until they stop engaging in human rights abuses.” 

Google employees have previously rallied against U.S. law enforcement agencies.

“In January of 2017 thousands of Googlers, including our executives, joined together to protest the Trump administration’s Muslim Ban,” the tech staffers noted.

The Google petition supporting illegal aliens was published a day after a former Google insider published a trove of internal Google documents proving the tech giant’s anti-conservative bias.

Zachary Vorhies, a software engineer who worked at Google for eight years, shared the documents with investigative watchdog Project Veritas and the Justice Department’s Antitrust Division, which is investigating Google for potential anti-competitive behavior.

The documents reveal Google’s new blacklist, its use of human raters to determine how content is rated and the corruption of the world’s most powerful company.
