On March 8, 2022, it was revealed that ICE has used administrative subpoenas to obtain nearly 6 million records about people sending or receiving money transfers from Arizona, California, New Mexico, Texas, and Mexico since 2019.

The ACLU and the ACLU of Arizona filed public records requests asking the Phoenix field office of ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the Arizona Attorney General for records regarding the illegal mass collection of people’s financial records.
