New York Times Opinion Columnist Encourages Doxxing of CBP Agents
The New York Times Saturday published an opinion piece by a professor of human rights at a London college which called for the doxxing of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents.
“The campaign to stop the abuses at the border should exploit this sensitivity and put social pressure on those involved in enforcing the Trump administration’s immigration policies,” the piece, penned by Kate Cronin-Furman said.
“The identities of the individual Customs and Border Protection agents who are physically separating children from their families and staffing the detention centers are not undiscoverable. Immigration lawyers have agent names; journalists reporting at the border have names, photos and even videos. These agents’ actions should be publicized, particularly in their home communities,” Cronin-Furman continued.
Despite the obvious suggestion that CBP agents should be doxxed, Cronin-Furman claimed the opposite, insisting that “it’s about exposure of their participation in atrocities.”
As if doxxing law enforcement officers was not vile enough, Cronin-Furman also encouraged the left-wing mob to target the livelihoods of those whom she described as “enablers” of the migrant policies.
When those directly involved in atrocities can’t be swayed, their enablers are often more responsive. For-profit companies are supplying food and other material goods to the detention centers. Boycotts against them and their parent entities may persuade them to stop doing so. Employees of these companies can follow the example of Wayfair workers, who organized a walkout on Wednesday in protest of their company’s sale of furniture to the contractor outfitting the detention centers. Finally, anyone can support existing divestment campaigns to pressure financial institutions to end their support of immigration abuses.
The rest of the piece was standard boilerplate leftist garbage, churning the wheels of the outrage machine that was, of course, non-existent during the Obama administration, which participated in the same treatment of illegal aliens.
Now that President Donald J. Trump is in office, it is a full-blown human rights crisis.
“The individuals running detention centers are arguably directly responsible for torture, which could trigger a number of consequences at the international level.”
