ACLU CBP FOIA Lawsuits Regarding Muslim Ban Implementation

American Civil Liberties Union affiliates across the country filed 13 Freedom of Information Act lawsuits today demanding government documents about the on-the-ground implementation of President Trump’s Muslim bans.

The lawsuit seeks records from local offices of U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Department of Homeland Security.

The ACLU first sought this information through FOIA requests submitted to CBP on February 2. Since the government has failed to substantively respond, the ACLU is now suing.
