The ACLU has asked FBI field offices in 29 states and Washington, D.C. to turn over records related to the agency's collection and use of race and ethnicity data in local communities. According to an FBI operations guide, FBI agents have the authority to collect information about and create maps of so-called "ethnic-oriented" businesses, behaviors, lifestyle characteristics and cultural traditions in communities with concentrated ethnic populations. In this video, ACLU Policy Counsel and former FBI Agent Mike German explains why this practice is unfair, inefficient, and un-American.
