Homeland Security Department Sued for Allegedly Tracking and Interrogating Journalists

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security violated the First Amendment when it allegedly tracked and interrogated five journalists between 2018 and 2019, the American Civil Liberties Union said in a lawsuit filed Wednesday.

The lawsuit includes accounts by five freelance photojournalists, all of whom are US citizens and were stopped by Customs and Border Protection, an agency within DHS, while traveling to and from Mexico between November 2018 and January 2019.

At the time, the journalists were documenting a group of migrants who were traveling to the US-Mexico border.
