Leaking Resources for Federal Employees with Ties to ‘Shithole’ Countries

Trump derides protections for immigrants from ‘shithole’ countries by Josh Dawsey.

From the post:

President Trump grew frustrated with lawmakers Thursday in the Oval Office when they discussed protecting immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal, according to several people briefed on the meeting.

“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, according to these people, referring to countries mentioned by the lawmakers.

The EEOC Annual report for 2014 reports out of 2.7 million women and men employed by the federal government:

…63.50% were White, 18.75% were Black or African American 8.50% were Hispanic or Latino, 6.16% were Asian, 1.49% were American Indian or Alaska Native, 1.16% were persons of Two or More Races and 0.45% were Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander…(emphasis added)

In other words, 27.25% of 2.7 million people working for the federal government, or approximately 794,000 federal employees have ties ‘shithole’ countries.

President Trump’s rude remarks are an accurate reflection of current U.S. immigration policy:

The United States treats other countries ‘shitholes’ but it is considered impolite to mention that in public.

Federal employees with ties to ‘shithole’ countries are at least as loyal, if not more so, than your average staffer.

That said, I’m disappointed that media outlets did not immediately call upon federal employees with ties to ‘shithole’ countries to start leaking documents/data.

Here are some places documents can be leaked to:

More generally, see Here’s how to share sensitive leaks with the press and their excellent listing of SecureDrop resources for anonymous submission of documents.

If you have heard of the Panama Papers or the Paradise Papers, then you are thinking about the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. They do excellent work, but like the other journalists mentioned, are obsessed with being in control of the distribution of your leak.

Every outrage, whether a shooting, unjust imprisonment, racist remarks, religious bigotry, is an opportunity to incite leaking by members of a group.

Not calling for leaking speaks volumes about your commitment to the status quo and its current injustices.
