Join us for a panel discussion and informative conversation on the recent NBC 7 investigation which exposed the US. Government’s secret database tracking journalists and immigration advocates going in and out of Mexico. In some cases this tracking system led to detainment and or denial of entry into the country.

The discussion will be led by NBC 7 Investigates and feature journalists that were in the database.


  • Tom Jones, Executive Producer, Investigative Team, NBC 7
  • Pedro Calderon Michel, News Director, Telemundo 20 
  • Photographer Ariana Drehsler, Member of the Media Tracked in the Database
  • Mitra Ebadolahi, Border Litigation Project Senior Staff Attorney for ACLU San Diego-Imperial Counties

This is a free event open to all journalists and the public.

The Department of Homeland Security has not responded to inquires over the secret database to reportedly track those involved or following with the migrant caravan. NBC 7's Catherine Garcia has more.
