Data Brokers: Do Not Build A Muslim Registry



This open letter instructs data mining and broker firms that it would be unlawful, unethical and a human rights violation for them to participate in constructing any kind of a “Muslim Registry” for Trump’s federal government.

The letter states: “We do not know what the future holds, but the President’s statements to date give cause for serious concern. President Trump has refused to rule out the possibility of a “Muslim registry,” and has stated his intention to quickly deport between 2 and 3 million people. Changes in immigration policy last week may have started to make this intention real, instituting harsher policies on deportation and detention.

These policies could be a disaster for human rights, and data brokers and data analytics companies must not be complicit”
