Over the past four years, the personal information of 3,200 California Department of Motor Vehicles customers was “improperly” shared with outside law enforcement, immigration and administrative agencies, The Sacramento Bee reports. Among those affected, 88 customers were undocumented immigrants, and 200 customers had their Social Security information shared with outside agencies, including the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Internal Revenue Service.
