Sam Lavigne, an leftist adjunct professor at New York University, created a database of 1,595 ICE employees from LinkedIn. Within minutes after publishing it, Antifa downloaded it, as well a group from Reddit that believes ICE are all Nazis. All of which could put the employees at risk. The database was deleted from the media but it is archived and still available. Within a day, Antifa had published not just the list, but the employees home addresses, according to the Daily Caller.
I scraped LinkedIn for people that work for ICE: https://t.co/MJuuyMeAal

Lavigne didn’t just put out a list, he went further by specifying the CTO of ICE. If someone manages to harm an ICE employee, then he could be looking at a full on murder charge.
The social sites, Medium and Github, where Lavigne placed his database, ultimately deleted it for violating their terms of service.
“We removed the project because it violates our community guidelines. In general, we have policies against use of GitHub for doxxing and harassment, and violating a third party’s privacy.” Github
But the Antifa Twitter account @PNWAWC called for people to “occupy ICE” and shut them down entirely.

A call from @OccupyICEPDX to launch occupations and push for the abolition of ICE. “We invite the rest of the country to join this movement, to gather and occupy your local ICE facility until it’s shut down.” #OccupyICE #OccupyICEPDX #SurroundICE https://t.co/a25fqYNOas pic.twitter.com/VoGXx4zlYL

The Twitter User Nathaniel Amirite (@NAmirite) deliberately published the names and addresses, even photos of the homes of ICE employees, calling them “Gestapo agents.”
Example of his tweets (we have blocked out the information he wanted to share):
**OFFICIAL NATIONWIDE CALL FOR ACTION AND OCCUPATION**

This kind of release is unbelievably dangerous of ICE employees. Antifa is most definitely a domestic terror group. Is it time yet for an Antifa Roundup?
This release of information on “ICE”employees is a most COWARDLY,DANGEROUS ILLEGAL & LIFE THREATENING ACT FOR ICE EMPLOYEES ,THEIR FAMILIES.
Parents,children(babies)wives,& friends are at risk.
Antifa operatives should be jailed. .Now

We need to call it like it is, this is a Domestic Terrorist Organization. This release of ICE information should trigger a full criminal investigation. Including prosecution of those involved.

“But this comes from LinkedIn” he will say.
The targeted compilation & release of info on ICE employees should be seen as an attempt to silence & intimidate government employees. It is an invitation of violence on them and their families. It is terrorism through information.

This account is calling for violence against @ICEgov employee’s.
