Sam Lavigne, a far-left artist, game designer, and professor at New York University art school, created a database of 1,595 ICE employees using their LinkedIn profiles and shared it with his 3,600 followers on Twitter. Antifa, a violent leftist organization that the FBI and Homeland Security classify as a terrorist organization, spread it further across Twitter. A group on Reddit who ‘doxxes’ the right, whom they consider Nazis, and include ICE and NSA agents in this characterization, also spread the list across the web.
Antifa, a violent, so-called anti-fascist group, tweeted out a list of over 1,500 Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents’ identities.
The Twitter account “nebraska antifa” sent out a tweet to its followers on Tuesday that linked to the personal information of ICE officers compiled from information found on LinkedIn.
“Some enterprising hero archived the ICE employees listed on linkedin,” the tweet reads.
A Twitter user who goes by Sam Lavigne compiled the list of ICE agents’ identities, titles and locations. In a tweet on Tuesday morning he says he “scraped LinkedIn for people that work for ICE.”
The Medium link in Lavigne’s was no longer available as of Tuesday night.
While the original post of ICE personal information has been removed, the Antifa Twitter account linked to an archived post, where viewers can access the Lavigne’s original database.
Lavigne created the database in response to ICE’s “inhumane” efforts in on the border, according to his archived Medium post.
“I’ve downloaded and made available the profiles of (almost) everyone on LinkedIn who works for ICE, 1,595 people in total. While I don’t have a precise idea of what should be done with this data set, I leave it here with the hope that researchers, journalists, and activists will find it useful,” Lavigne wrote on Medium.
