ACLU calls for US law enforcement to stop sharing license plate data with ICE

The American Civil Liberties Union on Wednesday called on law enforcement organizations to stop sharing license plate tracking data with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The organization released more than 1,800 pages of documents that it said showed ICE had accessed such data from more than 80 local law enforcement groups in more than a dozen states that used automated license plate readers, or ALPRs, which have drawn criticism from privacy advocates for being an invasive way of tracking people’s movements.
