Information regarding Merced Police sharing information with ICE

The American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California released records revealing that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has gained access to an expansive surveillance database to target immigrants.

The documents also reveal that local law enforcement agencies are aiding ICE in the surveillance efforts by sharing residents’ location information with ICE agents, sometimes in direct violation of local privacy laws or sanctuary policies.

 

Over 80 local law enforcement agencies, from over a dozen states, have agreed to share license plate location information with ICE. And emails show local police handing driver information over to ICE informally, violating local law and ICE policies.

The ACLU and partner organizations are calling on law enforcement to stop sharing residents’ location data with ICE.

“When local police and sheriffs share their residents’ sensitive information with ICE, they make all community members less safe.

Automated license plate readers, mounted on police cars or on objects like road signs and bridges, use small, high-speed cameras to photograph thousands of plates per minute.

This is the following information Merced City Manager said regarding this happening in Merced, “We are reviewing the information in the letter we received from the ACLU last week. Our review of the information will be done following our current policies and procedures. We look forward to meeting with ACLU representatives to discuss this matter further once we have completed our review.”
