"A coalition of human rights groups and technology organizations has blasted House Democrats’ high-tech border security proposal as a potentially invasive form of surveillance that would curtail Americans' privacy and target minorities.

'We know that the border is often a testing ground for surveillance technology that is later deployed throughout the United States,' the letter, which was signed by groups including the ACLU and the National Immigration Law Center, states. 'Ubiquitous surveillance technology poses a serious threat to human rights and constitutional liberties.'" []
