Sam Anderson found out about her companies potential contract with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) and knew she had to tell the public eye. ICE is yet another U.S. government agency that costs over $100B dollars annually, while creating distrust in communities, an increase in crime, children in cages, and more police brutality. 

Her whistleblowing tweet on September 23rd revealed that her employer, Hootsuite, a social media management company, had signed a $500M contract with ICE.

Among other co-worker uproar and upset about the contract, Hootsuite pulled out of the deal. However, Sam was fired today by Hootsuite for her leaking of the contract. When she first tweeted the news of the contract, she knew that her job was at stake but she still let the public know anyways. 

Once social media Twitter found out of today's news, uproar began.

Sam was not the only employee fired by Hootsuite. Their identity remains a secret, for now.

Sam's act of courage I'm sure will not go unrewarded. We've reached out to Sam for comment and will update if she responds.
