Software company Palantir has been disinvited from a major LGBTQ tech, conference, which, because of the public objection to it, it will work with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The New York City event, which is called “Lesbians Who Tech + Allies,” and it is scheduled for next month, which is sponsored by companies including Google, Bank of America, Verizon, and Facebook, and has previously featured speakers, including Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, former Secretary of state Hillary Clinton, former, George, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, and the San Francisco Mayor, London Breed.

“The members of the local community, the LGBTQ community, came to us with a concern about Palantir’s involvement in the job fair,” a representative explained to Fox News, “because of the recent news that the company’s software has been used to assist the ICE in an effort to collect, store, and search for data on undocumented migrants, and are said to be playing a role in the workplace, for the time being.”

Lesbians Who Tech (LWT) heard the concerns of LGBTQ community members, and decided to return to Palantir, it is a $15,000 sponsorship donation to the group, confirmed to Fox News.

Palantir co-founder Peter Thiel, provides a software to make ICE-cream by way of a variety of different tasks, including the agency’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) division. That division was reported to have been responsible for some of the workplace raids earlier this month in which dozens of immigrants were being rounded up for deportation.

As with a number of technology companies are faced with a built-in difference of opinion about the work of the U.S. government, more than 200 of the Palantir employees, said of her work with ICE, in a letter addressed to the chief executive officer, Alex Karp.

Karp doesn’t seem to agree with that of the workers is concerned, the criticism of companies like Google, which is the decline similar to U.S. contracts, and for ethical reasons, calling it a “lose” position, in a CNBC interview.

“This is the news all around the software in addition to the widely publicized raids, inhumane detention centers, and the family’s separation policy has been a great deal of attention to the various issues of human rights,” the Lesbians Who Tech, said. “LGBT issues are human rights issues, and we need to stand united on these issues that affect marginalized populations.”

Fox News has reached a Palantir for comment on this story. LWT said that, it doesn’t get more of a response from the Palantir of the decision.
