ACLU chapters sue for info on Trump's travel ban
by Lydia Wheeler
American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) affiliates across the country are suing the Trump administration, saying U.S. officials failed to turn over requested documents on the implementation of the president's travel ban.
ACLU chapters have filed 13 lawsuits seeking information from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and local U.S. Customs and Border Protection offices in more than a dozen cities including Boston, Chicago and Los Angeles.
The groups are pressing federal officials about how they were directed to implement President Trump's Jan. 27 executive order at specific airports and ports of entry. The order temporarily banned citizens from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the U.S., as well as refugees.
