Motherboard: CBP Bought ‘Unlimited’ Use of a Nationwide Tracking Database

Motherboard: CBP Bought ‘Unlimited’ Use of a Nationwide Tracking Database. “Customs and Border Protection, the law enforcement agency which recently flew a Predator drone over anti-police brutality protests, has purchased ‘unlimited’ alerts for the location of vehicles, and by extension people, across the country, according to internal CBP documents obtained by Motherboard. The documents, which include a coverage area map, show that the agency can track cars in major cities and populated areas of the country more generally. Many of the places it can track are far outside the border regions CBP nominally protects.”
