Immigrant Rights Groups Sue Data Broker LexisNexis over Selling Personal Data to ICE

HeadlineAug 17, 2022

A coalition of immigrant rights organizations have sued the data broker LexisNexis for collecting detailed personal information on millions of people and then selling it to governmental entities including Immigration and Customs Enforcement, ICE. The lawsuit alleges LexisNexis has helped create “a massive surveillance state with files on almost every adult U.S. consumer.” The groups also accuse ICE of using information collected by LexisNexis to circumvent local policies in sanctuary cities. Plaintiffs in the lawsuit include Organized Communities Against Deportations, Mijente and Just Futures Law.
