TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The NSA says it's legal to track foreign cell phones because of a presidential order.

The agency said today it doesn't track every foreign phone and call and it limits how much U.S. data is collected.

The Washington Post reported the agency gathers up to five billion records every day about the location data for hundreds of millions of cell phones world wide, including some American data.
