ICE Faces Backlash For Saying the 'Prevention of Another 9/11' Is the Reason Their Employees 'Go to Work Each Day'
September 11 since 2001 has become a day of reflection for many individuals and organizations. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was no exception.
Like many federal agencies, they took the opportunity to commemorate 9/11. But unlike others—many who actually participated in threat mitigation and recovery efforts after the attack—ICE decided to herald their own accomplishments rather than make a statement about those who died or those who stepped up.
In March of this year, North Carolina enacted HB2, known colloquially as the “bathroom law.” The anti-LGBTQ law revokes municipal LGBTQ nondiscrimination ordinances and prevents transgendered people from using certain bathrooms.
