ICE is reportedly using fake Facebook accounts to track undocumented immigrants

10/3/19 ICE agents have used fake Facebook accounts to monitor suspected undocumented immigrants and lure them into raids in 2019, according to multiple reports. Most recently, a New York Times report detailed how ICE agents used Facebook and other social media to carry out a series of arrests in Oregon this summer.
The practice violates Facebook’s rules, which prohibit “inauthentic behavior” including running accounts with fake names or accounts that mislead people. Key Words: Deportation, Detention
