Profs demand Johns Hopkins end ICE partnership ‘immediately’
Professors at Johns Hopkins University are petitioning the school’s president to “end the partnership of Johns Hopkins University with ICE.”
An online letter addressed to President Ronald Daniels demands that he “immediately dissolve the currently existing partnership between the Johns Hopkins University and ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement),” which is designed to improve ICE training and educational programs.
According to the university’s website, Johns Hopkins currently has at least two partnerships with ICE, including the “JHU-ICE Fellows Program” and the “JHU-ICE MS in Management Cohort Program.”
The letter alleges that ICE has “imposed a brutal policy of raids, deportations, and family separations of immigrants, some of whom are apprehended at the border, some of whom have lived peaceably here in our country for decades before being stripped of their rights and ripped from their families and communities.”
According to the petition,“ICE is now currently responsible for the fabrication and maintenance of facilities across the country,” which “have been described by scholars of the Holocaust as meeting the conditions considered definitive of concentration camps: indefinite detention without trial on the basis of identity.”
“We recognize that a range of views about the politics of immigration and border security are possible,” the petition concedes, saying, “We do not expect that you will publicly respond to each new policy or statement made by this administration.”
