What Do Deloitte and Robbie Van Winkle Have In Common?

Ice, ICE, baby.

Professional services and consulting giants Deloitte and Booz Allen Hamilton have collectively started $66,721,241 worth in contracts with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) since President Donald Trump took office, according to the U.S. government’s federal spending website.

According to the U.S. spending database, Deloitte has started $51,017,363 worth of contracts with ICE since Trump was inaugurated into the White House on January 20, 2017.

I guess Deloitte’s leadership didn’t really give a shit that more than 750 of the firm’s employees signed a petition last July saying they had “moral objections” to Deloitte providing consulting services to the immigration agency.

According to Newsweek:

However, instead of heeding their “moral objections,” Deloitte continued to sign agreements with ICE, with an analysis from Popular Information finding that Deloitte has entered into an additional $44 million worth of contracts with ICE since its workers voiced their opposition.

Deloitte also saw one of its biggest contracts with ICE in recent years begin in September 2017, with the award amounting to $7.7 million, according to the federal spending website.

Money talks, morality walks.
