FOIA Request Overview
In March 2017, Muslim Advocates and the MacArthur Justice Center submitted a FOIA request to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) regarding the revocation, in the wake of the issuance of the Muslim Ban, of Trusted Traveler memberships – including programs such as Global Entry, NEXUS, and SENTRI – from people with ties to predominantly Muslim countries.
After the administration refused to produce documents in a timely manner, Muslim Advocates and the MacArthur Justice Center sued DHS.
Date filed: March 7, 2017
