Morning Security Brief: Lawsuit Seeks Detention Data
By Teresa Anderson

A research group has filed a lawsuit in federal court challenging a decision by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) that the agency’s database cannot be accessed by the public. The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, part of Syracuse University, filed the lawsuit after ICE refused to honor a Freedom of Information Act request to obtain information from the database, including data on the thousands of individuals being held at detention facilities without being charged with a crime.
