[License Plate Data] Sanctuary Cities Are Handing ICE a Map

https://slate.com/technology/2018/03/how-ice-may-be-able-to-access-license-plate-data-from-sanctuary-cities-and-use-it-for-arrests.html

        These sharing agreements mean that even if a city with
        sanctuary policies doesn't provide vehicle-location
        information to ICE directly, other agencies at the DHS that do
        provide information to ICE have easy access to, say,
        Sacramento's data, because the county sheriff's department
        sends its license-plate data to Vigilant Solutions' database.
        The same goes for Los Angeles County, which also has sanctuary
        protections. Because Los Angeles County elects to share its
        license-plate-reader data with San Diego and Sacramento and
        possibly even other cities or DHS offices that have
        data-sharing arrangements with Vigilant, ICE can likely obtain
        Los Angeles County's data with relative ease.
