US Announces Plans To Monitor Immigrants’ Social Media Accounts
The United States government has quietly announced that it is planning on continuing to collect social media information on immigrants in America.
The rule, according to report would apply both to new arrivals in the country who have also undergone extensive vetting, as well as to naturalised citizens.
The policy says the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) wants to include “social media handles, aliases, associated identifiable information, and search results” in the immigration files it keeps.
It is however unclear how immigration agents would access the accounts.
