[liberationtech] Deteinees/banned entry data on airports in the US

yes about protecting the ID of the detainees but also we need to help the attorneys to find information about people who are all over the world and stuck because of the ban… Perhaps a collector of information of where they are, residency vs. greencard, dates of when their travel visas expire, if they have a scheduled flight coming up and when… we need to coordinate it through ACLU (I have contacts with them as I partner on alot of projects) not through the government. maybe we first collect first name and phone number next and then ACLU contact them to get all the details listed above…
I am here at the airport and can ask more questions if you have any
