The U.S. will begin collecting social media data on immigrants, green card holders and naturalized U.S. Citizens

The New York Times ran an extremely interesting article recently titled: “U.S. to collect Social Media Data on all Immigrants Entering the Country”

“The Department of Homeland Security will soon begin collecting social media data from all immigrants entering the United States, part of what agency officials call an effort to more effectively screen those coming to the country but privacy advocates see as an unnecessary intrusion that would do little to protect national security.

The department will begin collecting the information on Oct. 18.

In addition, green card holders and naturalized citizens (i.e. not U.S. Citizens who were born in the United States) will also have their social media information collected “with the data becoming part of their immigration file.”

“It was unclear whether the monitoring would take place only in the application process or could continue afterward.”

“The data collection has alarmed privacy groups and lawyers, who expressed concerns on about how the department would use the information. Advocates say they also worry that the monitoring could suck in information on American citizens who communicate over social media with immigrants.”

This is definitely an article that every person should read.  This is especially true for those of us who are on social media.  Basically, every person who is receiving some sort of Immigration benefit in the United States will be having their social media accounts reviewed by the Department of Homeland Security.

    TEMPORARY VISA

    Our experience was amazing. The process was smooth. Larry and Jason helped us every step of the way to get my husband’s temporary visa. When I started getting anxiety about how long it takes, what’s the next step or what if’s, I would call either of them and they had no problems giving me answers. Jason went with us to our meeting with immigration, and made us laugh the whole time. He really helped keep me calm as I suffer from anxiety very badly. A year later, I can still call Larry and ask questions about the next step. I’m very thankful I found these guys!!! Highly recommend them!
