Genomsökning av datorer och telefoner vid inresa till USA nu till domstol

EFF meddelar att man nu tillsammans med ACLU tar DHS genomsökning av data på resenärers datorer, plattor och mobiler till domstol.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and the ACLU today asked a federal court to rule without trial that the Department of Homeland Security violates the First and Fourth Amendments by searching travelers’ smartphones and laptops at airports and other U.S. ports of entry without a warrant.

The request for summary judgment comes after the groups obtained documents and deposition testimony revealing that U.S. Customs and Border Protection and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement authorize border officials to search travelers’ phones and laptops for general law enforcement purposes, and consider requests from other government agencies when deciding whether to conduct such warrantless searches.

Förra året genomfördes 33.000 sådana kontroller.
