In a detailed Medium post announcing concerns over the contract, the group “No GCP for CPB” laid out its complaints and demands (emphasis in original):

“We refuse to be complicit,” the group said.

The letter was signed, at press time, by “676 Googlers and 48 other supporters.”

As Vox reported Wednesday, employees have been at the forefront of movements against the country’s large tech sector cooperating with CBP and ICE:

Other rights groups, including the Texas-based RAICES, applauded the stand taken by the tech giant employees.

“We appreciate the Google workers standing with us,” tweeted RAICES.  

Mijente said it hoped that the Google group wouldn’t be the last. 

“We encourage tech workers across all of these companies to keep organizing and escalate until their employers stop engaging in human rights abusers,” said Mijente.
