ACLU of Georgia v Kelly

The American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and West Virginia and the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and West Virginia (together with the American Civil Liberties Union,”ACLU”) submitted a Freedom of Information Act (“FOIA”) request for records  regarding Mr. Trump’s ban on individuals who were traveling from nations where Islam is the dominant religion.

Specifically, the ACLU sought records held by U.S. Customs and Border Protection employees and offices at the Local International Airports, and the corresponding Port of Entry Offices and Regional Field Operations Office.

The Executive Order halted refugee admissions and barred entrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States.
