    this article for some further clues:

    The new batch of records show additional warnings by DHS officials about unconstitutional surveillance. The documents DHS previously released to Truthout did not contain smoking guns proving DHS worked with local law enforcement and local government officials "in any wholesale manner," as noted by one DHS official, on the coordinated crackdown of Occupy encampments throughout the country last October.

    However, DHS and its sub-agencies, such as Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE), spent a considerable amount of time monitoring the protest movement, apparently, without any justification, according to the new documents.

    For example, according to the documents, ICE sent a "special agent" on New Years Day to assist law enforcement authorities, if necessary, during an international meeting between members of Occupy Buffalo and Occupy Toronto and other regional Occupies on the famous Rainbow Bridge, where tourists can walk to each side of the Niagara Falls, according to a "significant incident report" issued by ICE.
