GitHub faces more resignations in light of ICE contract

Microsoft-owned GitHub has been under intense scrutiny as of late for its $200,000 contract with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Now, another employee, engineer Alice Goldfuss, has resigned.
In a tweet, Goldfuss said GitHub has a number of problems to address and that “ICE is only the latest.”
Meanwhile, Vice reports at least five staffers quit today. These resignations come the same day as GitHub Universe, the company’s big product conference. Ahead of the conference, Tech Workers Coalition protested the event, setting up a cage to represent where ICE detains children.

We joined @techworkersco & @githubbers protesting the Github ICE contract at #GithubUniverse this morning in San Francisco.
Immigrant communities are under attack & tech companies are complicit.
They can no longer profit from our people without feeling the wrath.#NoTechForICE
