– “Exclusive: ICE is about to start tracking license plates across the US”
“The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency has officially gained agency-wide access to a nationwide license plate recognition database, according to a contract finalized earlier this month [January 2018]. The system gives the agency access to billions of license plate records and new powers of real-time location tracking, raising significant concerns from civil libertarians.
“The source of the data is not named in the contract, but an ICE representative said the data came from Vigilant Solutions, the leading network for license plate recognition data.”
“For civil liberties groups, the implications go far beyond immigration,” by Russell Brando, The Verge.
