US Govt Tracking Photojournalists with Secret Database, Leaked Docs Reveal
The US government has a secret database through which it’s tracking people tied to the migrant caravan, according to newly leaked documents, and found on the list are a number of photojournalists.
NBC 7 San Diego has published a set of documents received from a unnamed source in Homeland Security. The documents show that the United States created a list of over 50 journalists, social media influencers, and activists tied to the caravan that made international headlines in late 2018. And in some cases, alerts were placed on the people’s passports.
“[I]n the months that followed, journalists who covered the caravan, as well as those who offered assistance to caravan members, said they felt they had become targets of intense inspections and scrutiny by border officials,” NBC 7 writes. “One photojournalist said she was pulled into secondary inspections three times and asked questions about who she saw and photographed in Tijuana shelters. Another photojournalist said she spent 13 hours detained by Mexican authorities when she tried to cross the border into Mexico City. Eventually, she was denied entry into Mexico and sent back to the U.S.
“These American photojournalists and attorneys said they suspected the U.S. government was monitoring them closely but until now, they couldn’t prove it.”
The leaked documents, titled “San Diego Sector Foreign Operations Branch: Migrant Caravan FY-2019, Suspected Organizers, Coordinators, Instigators and Media,” show a list of people that have been fingered by the government for screening at the border. Alongside names are portraits, birth dates, roles, and more. Several of the roles seen in the photos published by NBC 7 read: “Media/Photographer.”
And NBC 7 reports that at least 3 of the photojournalists had alerts placed on their passports, preventing them from entering Mexico to do their work.
