Defying a tough anti-immigration law in Arizona, the popular hacking outfit, LulzSec broke into the official website of the Arizona Police. The hackers released documents pertaining to issues like border control, and that of other crucial law enforcement activities, totally weighing half a gigabyte, approximately.
Chingra La Migra, they say!
Titled ‘Chingra La Migra’, or ‘Screw the Immigration Service’, the hack attack resulted in several key details like account names, passwords, and other contact details being made public. According to reports, a scan of the leaked data revealed that the data in hand were security bulletins, apparently, from other law enforcement agencies, and more of such internal, highly secretive details.
The hack comes at a time when Mexico border state tightened the noose around the issue of border security, last year. The law was passed to put a stop on illegal immigration, and curb border-related crime. Although the law won support from several American quarters, few others thought that the anti-immigration laws would prove fatal to the existence of Hispanic-Americans.
