Homeland Security Announces Rule to Collect Social Media Information for Immigrants

In September 2017 the Department of Homeland Security released a new rule to include social media information in the files of all individuals who have become naturalized citizens or who hold a green card. This rule contributes the surveillance state and allows all social media communications of immigrants to be subject to monitoring by the government. Such a rule could marginalize those who have already met in depth immigration standards and disrupt their lives.
