US agencies using phone location data for immigration enforcement

As per documents reviewed by the WSJ, the Trump administration reportedly acquired access to a commercial database that tracks the movements of millions of cellphones in the US. The data is reportedly collected from apps for gaming, weather and shopping that ask users to grant them location access. The data has been used by the DHS to detect undocumented immigrants.
