There’s no surprise here. It is well known that the U.S. government secretly tracks citizens and non-citizens alike. Some attorneys claim this is illegal and even unconstitutional. (I’ll leave it to the attorneys to argue those points.) Now a secret tracking database has been exposed.
The newly-exposed documents detail an intelligence-gathering effort by the United States and Mexican authorities, targeting more than 50 people including journalists, an attorney, and immigration advocates.
These American photojournalists and attorneys said they suspected the U.S. government was monitoring them closely but until now, they couldn’t prove it.
