Call for federal investigation after doxxing

 

FLEOA Condemns Antifa Illegal Doxxing of 1,500 ICE Personnel Identities

For Immediate Release

June 22, 2018

Washington, D.C. – The Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA), the largest not-for-profit, non-partisan professional association representing more than 26,000 federal law enforcement officers and agents across 65 agencies, is calling on the Justice Department to identify and prosecute all Antifa members responsible for illegally doxxing and publicly posting the identities of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) personnel.

Doxxing (or doxing) is an internet-based practice of researching and publishing personally identifiable information about an individual. Doxxing violates the terms of service of most online news and information sites, and is always illegal under various federal and state criminal laws related to stalking, cyberstalking, harassment, threats, etc. FLEOA President Nathan Catura said, "Yesterday’s illegal actions of the Antifa to publish the personally identifiable information of 1,500 ICE agents and personnel recklessly and needlessly places the lives of federal law enforcement officers and their family members at risk.”

"FLEOA calls on the Justice Department to vigorously investigate and prosecute the illegal actions of the Antifa and any individuals associated with the publishing of this sensitive information,” Catura continued. "Should any of these ICE agents suffer harm as a result of these actions, the Antifa will have blood on their hands.”

"ICE and other Federal agents go to work every day to protect our communities and homeland security. They perform the functions our government mandates them to do. They have no say in what laws to enforce or how. They should not have to fear for their lives nor those of their loved ones because of illegal activities of criminal organizations like Antifa," Catura concluded.
