Leaked documents show DHS uses shocking, illegal secret police tactics target journalists, human rights attorneys including @luzenlafrontera at @AlOtroLado_Org - new from @TomJonesNBC

2/ “Suspected Organizers, Coordinators, Instigators, and Media” is a chilling title for an Intelligence unit document that includes as targets journalists covering the Exodus and human rights attorneys offering free legal services to vulnerable asylum-seekers.
3/ DHS scrubbing social media and gathering personal info and then adding colored “X” over their photo.

And then creating dossiers on these individuals, ultimately revoking or limiting their ability to travel.
4/ Operation Secure Line snared @luzenlafrontera and @AlOtroLado_Org, among others. Collected information on the car she drives and her mom.
5/ document explicitly identifies journalists as targets for secondary inspection.

This is, according to the source, and anyone who knows the law, a blatant abuse of the agencies’ Border Search Authority.
6/ This leaked document helps to explain why @Noraistired was illegally detained for hours with her kid on a family vacation to Guadalajara and then deported from Mexico. latimes.com/nation/immigra…
7/ It explains why @AlOtroLado_Org litigation director @eeerox got deported from Mexico and separated from her family. amp.timeinc.net/time/5542477/m…
8/ And the US regime’s coordination with #AMLO’s intel services may explain why @AlOtroLado_Org keeps getting death threats motherjones.com/politics/2019/…
9/ This is really, really frightening overreach by an out of control, lawless agency. This illegal surveillance and the misuse of government authority to intimidate, threatens, harass, and silence human rights defenders has us going down an extremely dangerous path. /END
