New Report: ICE Tracking Americans Using Driver’s License, Utility Bill Data (San Diego, CA) — A new report from Georgetown Law says Immigration and Customs Enforcement is tracking Americans through personal information the agency was able to buy. Ev Meade, director of Proceso Pacífico, a peace and justice initiative in Mexico, says he’s worried about the agency’s access to personal data.
