The U.S. Government is Tracking Journalists and Immigration Advocates, Leaked Documents Show

The Infinite Brief
Documents show the U.S. government maintains a secret database of activists, journalists, and social media influencers tied to the migrant caravan and in some cases, places alerts on their passports.

The documents or screenshots show a SharePoint application that was used by agents from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The intelligence gathering efforts were done under the umbrella of “Operation Secure Line,” the operation designated to monitor the migrant caravan. 

The individuals listed include ten journalists, seven of whom are U.S. citizens, a U.S. attorney, and 48 people from the U.S. and other countries, labeled as organizers, instigators or their roles “unknown.”
