Source: Leaked Documents Show the U.S. Government Tracking Journalists and Immigration Advocates Through a Secret Database

Documents obtained by NBC 7 Investigates show the U.S. government created a secret database of activists, journalists, and social media influencers tied to the migrant caravan and in some cases, placed alerts on their passports.

At the end of 2018, roughly 5,000 immigrants from Central America made their way north through Mexico to the United States southern border. The story made international headlines.

This happens frequently when some branch office or local falloon decides he doesn't have to pay attention to the constitution. There was an amazing lapse in MN during goober's war, when the local version of the Feds started raiding the homes of harmless old ladies for peace and seizing computers. I think a few of the activists were charged, essentially with bad attitude or insufficient reverence to our glorious wars for freedom in the Middle East, but I doubt any convictions came out of it.
