United States District Judge Anthony J. Trenga heard final arguments from CAIR attorneys and United States government attorneys on April 4, 2019 regarding CAIR’s legal challenge to the terror watch list.  Proposed Summary Judgements from Plaintiffs and Defendants have been filed.  The case is now in Judge Trenga’s hands for a ruling.  Judge Trenga has been preparing the ruling on this case since April 4, 2019 when Florida Family Association sent out its last alert regarding this lawsuit.

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) sued the Department of Homeland Security, Terrorist Screening Center, National Counterterrorism Center, Transportation Security Administration, Federal Bureau of Investigation and United States Customs and Border Protection on April 5, 2016.  The lawsuit challenges the validity of the Terror Screening Database, the official name for the terror watch list that is used by law enforcement and the private sector to protect hundreds of millions of Americans from terrorism.

Discovery in this lawsuit revealed that the federal government shared the Terror Screening Database with 1,400 private entities, including hospitals and universities.  CAIR demanded to know the names of these entities and what they are doing with the information.   CAIR was allowed to view the list of 1,400 entities that have access to the Terror Screening Database on February 25, 2019.  Thankfully, the court allowed CAIR only to briefly view the list but not have a copy of it.

CAIR complains that their associates are on the Terror Screening Database.  However, many Council on American Islamic Relations' officials have been sentenced to prison and/or deported for supporting terrorism.  CAIR leaders have proclaimed support for Hamas and Islamic imperialism over the United States and the United States Constitution.  Council on American Islamic Relations leaders have defended terrorists.   This Floridafamily.org article provides many reasons to be suspicious of CAIR. 

Now that Judge Trenga has received proposed Summary Judgements and heard oral argument, this lawsuit which challenges the validity of a major tool used by law enforcement and the private sector to protect millions of Americans from terrorism is close to a final ruling.

Both District Judge Anthony J Trenga and Magistrate Judge John F. Anderson preside over this lawsuit.
