Hi, my name is [name], I’m a concerned citizen from [area]. I read an article published by the Washington Post about how the FBI and ICE are abusing state DMV records. Did you hear about this? They’re basically taking our ID photos and they’re using it as their own private facial recognition database.

Most of the people in the DMV’s records are innocent of any crimes nor have they been accused of a crime—and yet their records are being scrutinized as if they have been accused and they are never notified that their records were searched by the FBI or ICE.
I was wondering if you could tell [representative] that I find this to be—not only a violation of the constitution’s guarantee of separation of powers, but also an instance of extreme government overreach that puts our very civil liberties in jeopardy? Thank you.

I am on LBRY: lbry://@TheLinuxGamer#feb61536c007cdf4faeeaab4876cb397feaf6b51 and I also have a BitChute mirror.
Most PeerTube instances have a data quota that just doesn't serve my channel well. My videos are high-res (4K) and I'd exceed most quotas in one or two videos.
