The Trump administration is using private data to monitor immigration and the border, thanks to a massive database of cell phone records it purchased from private vendors.
Why it matters: Experts are concerned about the scale and use of the data, even if it appears to be on firm legal footing, the WSJ reports.
Between the lines: The government is quickly putting this data to use alongside its own increased collection.
The big picture: In the U.S., the government seems to be leaning ever more into its ability to weaponize big data, reports Axios tech editor Kyle Daly.
The bottom line: This adds to concerns about the tech industry's model of amassing hoards of data and assuring people it is fine because it gets anonymized.
