Palantir CEO reflects on work with ICE
Palantir CEO Alex Karp told "Axios on HBO" that there have "absolutely" been moments he wished the company hadn't taken a contract with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
- "Did I suffer? ... I've had some of my favorite employees leave," Karp told "Axios on HBO."
- Karp said "no, no, no" when asked if he wished they'd never taken the contract.
The big picture: Palantir has worked with ICE dating back to 2014 during the Obama administration. Such government contracts have stirred up employee protests at a number of Big Tech companies in Silicon Valley.
- In the "Axios on HBO" interview, Karp defended the company's government contracts, saying he gives special preferences to the U.S. and its Western allies.
