If the answer is yes, there’s more bad news on the way for Facebook.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is apparently using  Facebook data to track down undocumented immigrants targeted for deportation.

The East Bay Times gives us a rare glimpse into one of the tactics ICE uses to monitor undocumented immigrants before rounding them up.

Agents use backend Facebook data that shows when an account is accessed. The data also reveals the IP addresses corresponding to each login.

From there, ICE’s investigative unit obtains the suspect’s phone number and the location of each of their logins during a specific time period.

Facebook denied they did anything wrong.

That makes us laugh. Something tells us Facebook’s word means nothing.
