Watching Immigrants
-Professor Alvaro Bedoya, Visiting Professor of Law, Georgetown University Law Center

NSEERS, the New York Police Department’s Demographics Unit, and the precursor to the NSA call records program. These systems, arguably among the 21st century’s largest and most controversial surveillance programs, have something else in common: They were built and deployed to watch immigrants. Indeed, with ICE and CBP agents outnumbering DOJ, DEA, and ATF officers, it can be fairly said that our federal, post-9/11 security state is premised on the idea that immigrants are dangerous. Who gained from this idea? Who lost? And where has this idea left us twenty years after September 11, and mere months after the insurrection of January 6? In this lecture, Alvaro Bedoya, founding director of the Center on Privacy & Technology at Georgetown Law, will probe these questions and offer a different vision for the future of 21st century national security.
