Protesters say ‘ICE destroys our communities’

The Federal Government Fair brought 66 federal agencies and approximately 145 representatives to the Satellite Student Union yesterday. In addition to bringing students, faculty and staff to check out government job opportunities, the fair attracted controversy and a protest over the presence of one government agency.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency is under the Department of Homeland Security. According to their Web site’s mission statement, the organization, “protects national security and upholds public safety by targeting criminal networks and terrorist organizations that seek to exploit vulnerabilities in our immigration system, in our financial networks, along our border, at federal facilities and elsewhere in order to do harm to the United States.”
