Immigration and Customs Enforcement is seeking the ability to track cellphones and other devices, according to a new report.

Defense One cited a recent government request for information that outlined ICE's desire for the technology. It is actively looking for a cloud-based service to perform the task, which would involve pinpointing either the exact location of a device or an area.

The technology would use data from "Wi-Fi, Apps, Software Development Kit (SDK), Bidstream, Beacons, etc.," according to the ICE request.

ICE agents would need the ability to readily access the information.

The deadline for bid submissions is June 17, and ICE pledged to abide by federal laws and keep personal information safe once the new system is up and running.

Some Democrats have criticized ICE over the last few years, calling the agency out for deporting illegal aliens who are located in the United States. Some Democrats, including presidential candidates, would like to see ICE abolished.
