ADC Files FOIA Request Regarding Global Entry Revocations

Washington, D.C. | www.adc.org | March 9, 2017 – The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) has submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to the Department of Homeland Security – Customs and Border Protection agency (CBP) regarding the revocation of  Global Entry privileges for Arab and Muslim Americans. The effort is led by Mr. Andrew Free from the Law Office of Andrew Free, as well as with Mr. Greg Siskind of Siskind Susser, P.C.; both have volunteered their time and resources to assist with this matter.  

ADC received reports that immediately following the presidential election in November persons who were granted access to the Global Entry program had 
the privilege revoked by CBP. Global Entry is a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) program that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, 
low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. 

The FOIA request included a specific request for any and all records maintained by the agency relating to revocations, suspensions, terminations, as well as the numbers, confirmations, and policy practices of such decisions.

If you have had your Global Entry privilege revoked, please contact ADC immediately by emailing the ADC Legal Department to legal@adc.org. In the email please include the date your Global Entry privilege was denied. Also, please include your contact information. You can also call our office at 202-244-2990.
