Immigrant Facebook Users BEWARE

Last week Homeland Security published a new rule in the Federal Register , describing how it plans to increase the information it collects when investigating a person’s immigration status. It will include social media fictitious names and maybe even search histories.

The DHS also plans to find data from "publicly available information obtained from the internet, public records, public institutions, interviewees, commercial data providers, and information obtained and disclosed pursuant to information sharing agreements." According to BuzzFeed, this surveillance custom could also eventually pick up data on anyone who corresponds with a US immigrant.

The policy applies to not only to immigration applicants, but also to naturalized U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents.

The new requirement, was first reported by BuzzFeed News , and is scheduled to take effect on October 18, 2017.
