Thomson Reuters has been awarded ICE contracts worth millions of dollars to supply data and intelligence solutions that help ICE target immigrant communities and tear apart families. Profiting from misery in any form is unacceptable, and Thomson Reuters continues to build lasting infrastructure for mass surveillance, deportation, and incarceration.
Join us in protest at Thomson Reuters' Boston office as we raise awareness of Reuters' active role in ICE violence and apply pressure on the company to change its course.

"The reporters at Reuters have been providing crucial, unfliching coverage of the cruel treatment of would-be immigrants under policies pushed by President Donald Trump. Meanwhile, the news agency’s parent company, Thomson Reuters, has been supplying U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement with data from its vast stores as part of federal contracts worth close to $30 million. A letter from a Thomson Reuters executive shows that the company is ready to defend at least one of those contracts while remaining silent on the rest."
"The documents obtained by the ACLU provide the deepest look yet into the database run by Vigilant Solutions, one of the largest suppliers of data analysis software and equipment for police and sheriff’s departments across the country. They show more than 9,000 ICE agents nationwide have access to the Vigilant system through a $6.1-million contract with Thomson Reuters Special Services that was signed in December 2017 and runs through September 2020."
