Immigration and Cell Phone Tracking

Trump’s immigration crackdown relies on controversial cellphone tracking device”
ThinkProgress
 
            Previously used in counterterrorism operations, the controversial device, called a Stingray, is often used to pinpoint cellphones in a targeted area. The device does so by imitating a cellphone tower, making cellphone signals appear on the Stingray rather than on an actual tower. Recently, federal records have demonstrated that ICE has been using these devices in order to track down undocumented immigrants. While the Stingray requires a warrant to be used, similar devices such as Wolfhounds and Jugulars do not.
 
            Privacy concerns arise from the fact that the Stingray collects data on not just the targeted individual, but others in the same area as well. This includes legal immigrants and other U.S. citizens who are not targeted by the warrant. This also increases the likelihood of deportation among individuals without violent and/or felony offenses. Recent data shows that in 24 states, police departments on both the state and local level have access to these devices.
 
 
Respect of privacy is a right that extends mainly to citizens. They say that once you purchase any device that has a GPS monitoring system in it, you are consenting to use a government owned tracking system and that means you are willingly sharing your location information. Thus, your privacy is much rather limited. Additionally, the Privacy Act only extends when the search is unauthorized, however, if a warrant is provided, authorities have all right to invade. While this may be easily understood upon research, few people actually know of this operation. Again, his right again extends mainly to citizens only, so it would be hard for illegal immigrants to use this as a protection. Hence, once you come to the US with good intentions, being a person of good moral turpitude you should have no worries.
