Beginning October 18th, the United States Department of Homeland (DHS) secure will begin an increase in information it collects on all immigrants (documented or otherwise). This expansion will include social media as well as search results. The Trump administration published this information in the Federal Register. The policy is articulated in 12 points explaining the information the Department of Homeland Security will be able to access. The collection of this type of information impacts not only U.S. immigrants, but also everyone who interacts with them.
Our Verdict: It is not clear how the DHS will access this information. This type of surveillance is an extreme measure and it is unclear what result the administration hopes to get from this monitoring of peoples personal lives.
