Feds use anti-terror tool to hunt the undocumented

Federal investigators are using a cellphone snooping device designed for  
counter-terrorism to hunt undocumented immigrants amid President Donald Trump's  
immigration crackdown, according to federal court records obtained by The  
Detroit News.

An unsealed federal search warrant affidavit obtained by The News is the first  
public acknowledgment that agents are using secret devices that masquerade as a  
cell tower to find people who entered the U.S. illegally, privacy and civil  
liberty experts said.
