The medical school used to train members of ICE to handle medical emergencies. The student mob has put an end to that.

Johns Hopkins not renewing contract under which medical school has trained ICE agents for emergencies

The Johns Hopkins University is ending one of its contracts with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, announcing Thursday that the medical school has severed an agreement to train federal immigration agents in responding to emergency medical situations.

In a statement, university spokeswoman Kim Hoppe wrote that the medical school notified ICE’s Office of Investigations several weeks ago that it would not be renewing the contract, which has trained ICE’s Special Response Teams in medical training since 2004.

“After careful and deliberate consideration, the JHU Center for Law Enforcement Medicine will not be renewing this contract,” Hoppe wrote, adding that university officials are negotiating how to execute “a safe and orderly wrap up of the medical programs.”

Students have long protested the university’s contracts with ICE and aggressively called for the school to sever ties. They’ve accused the university of “pretending to stand for progressive principles while reaping the rewards of dirty business.”

As part of a monthlong sit-in at Garland Hall in April, students demanded the university end its contracts with ICE andcancel plans for its own police force.
