Failing to do right: The urgent need for Palantir to respect human rights

... Given Palantir’s increasingly entrenched role in government operations and its multiple contracts across federal agencies, concerns about its human rights record are growing in urgency and deserve scrutiny. As one example, Palantir’s contracts with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for products and services for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), raise serious questions about the company’s actions to uphold its responsibility to respect human rights.

...Through Palantir’s contracts with DHS/ICE for products and services for the Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) divisionof ICE, Amnesty International has determined there is a high risk that Palantir is contributing to serious human rights violations of migrants and asylum-seekersby the U.S. government, which Amnesty International has thoroughly documented for years. In particular, Palantir’s contracts to provide its Integrated Case Management System (ICM) and FALCON analytical platforms to ICE risk contributing to human rights violations of asylum-seekers and migrants who are separated from family members, subject to workplace raids, detained, and face deportation by ICE.
