WASHINGTON – In a letter to Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Congresswoman Susan Davis (D-San Diego) requested information on any people with visas or Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) status who might be detained at San Diego International Airport. Davis also called for them to be released from CBP custody and that they be allowed access to attorneys.

“People who have been lawfully vetted and granted legal status are being detained illegally as a result of the president’s unconstitutional executive order,” said Davis. “We need to know who they are and they need to be released immediately and granted access to lawyers. This order is striking fear into families who have legal status and have done nothing wrong. This should never happen in America and the White House should immediately rescind this executive order.”

The letter sent to CBP Acting Commissioner Kevin McAleenan asks for clarification of how the executive order is being implemented and how it pertains to current visa holders seeking entry into the United States, visa applicants, LPRs, dual citizens, United States citizens and any other individuals from the seven designated countries in the Executive Order
