ICE to discontinue inherent bias training for executives
UPDATED 7:49 AM PT – Wednesday, December 9, 2020
The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency is ending several diversity programs President Trump has called divisive.
According to reports Tuesday, the move was implemented in response to an executive order signed by the President Trump back in October. The measure banned particular training programs, which taught divisive and anti-American rhetoric to government employees.
The so-called “Tools of Tolerance Training Program” required ICE executives to spend several days at the Los Angeles Museum of Tolerance and the Holocaust Museum. They were required to engage in inherent bias training seminars, which taught concepts such as the notion that inherent racism permeates American society.
“But, you know, they’re not being taught that…they’re being taught that we’re not great,” President Trump stated during a previous campaign rally. “I’ve also issued an executive order to prohibit the teaching of Critical Race Theory in the Federal Government…Critical Race Theory is a Marxist doctrine.”
