A Civil Rights Victory on Terrorism Watchlist



GUEST: Carolyn Homer, Trial Attorney with the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).

BACKGROUND: A Federal judge just ruled that the government's so-called terrorism watchlist violates people's rights and may be unconstitutional.

The F.B.I.’s Terrorist Screening Center has been maintaining the list for years and currently lists about 4,600 US citizens who face severe travel restrictions.

The majority of people on the list, which numbers a total of 1.2 million people, are non-American.

The judge's decision was made on a case brought by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) on behalf of about 2-dozen Americans who are on the list.
