San Diego's NBC 7 station was sent a large dump of information from an unnamed Homeland Security source which has exposed a secret US Database which was being used by Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection, ICE, US Border Patrol, and the FBI.

The database was used to track non American and American immigration lawyers, journalist, immigration advocates, and social media influencers surrounding immigration.

The source told NBC 7 the data was collected under a code name of 'Operation Secure Line" which was set up by the US and Mexican Govts to track and monitor caravans of illegal immigrants

Documents on each person include their passport photo, social media accts, personal information, dates of birth, records if they have placed an alert on their passports, if the person has been flagged to always go through secondary screening if trying to cross the border.

Each person also had an individual dossier written up on them

Nicole Ramos a Mexican citizen who is an attorney at a law center in Tijuana said she reviewed her dossier. She said it had details about what kind of car she drives, her mothers name, and all of her work and travel history.

After NBC 7 published this information of the secret database the US Customs and Border protection acknowledged it was real and said all the names in the database were people who were at the US border in November when violence broke out and they were tracking them to see if they could learn anymore about what caused that violence to break out.

The ACLU said this was outrageous for the US Govt to track its citizens and said for the Govt to intentionally target Journalist, Lawyers who are doing their jobs, and also track US Citizen activist who do not agree with their policy via mandatory secondary screenings (some of which have taken 17+ hours on several occasions).

ACLU said it was also unconstitutional for the US Govt on the pretext of border control target US citizens and gather intel on them based on the fact they are doing their job.

It seems both sides could agree this is bad. They won't but they could.
