'Outrageous': Company Spied on Family Separation Protests Gave Info to DHS

Eoin Higgins, staff writer

A private company monitored protests around President Donald Trump's family separation policy last year and shared the information with the government, leading to anger and calls for an investigation.

The company, LookingGlass Cyber Solutions, spied on Americans around the country in the early summer of 2018. The surveillance was done in the lead-up to at least 600 protests held across the country against the family separation policy.

The revelation comes from documents obtained by the American Immigration Council and shared with The Intercept.

I think we have to assume that we’re under surveillance any time we engage in Constitutionally-protected political activities. The takeaway? Safety in numbers. Venceremos!
