U.S. privacy laws in the age of Trump

In my first part of “Trump’s Executive Order Eliminates Privacy Act Protections for Foreigners” I wrote about Section 14 of the Executive Order which states:

“Agencies shall, to the extent consistent with applicable law, ensure that their privacy policies exclude persons who are not United States citizens or lawful permanent residents from the protections of the Privacy Act regarding personally identifiable information.” El Trumpo is not only building walls he’s tearing them down too.

In Part Two video podcast law professor Michael Geist talks about information sharing agreements as they pertain to Canada and U.S., but such implications could apply to any country besides Canada.
