Twitter filed a lawsuit against the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Customs and Border Protection today. Twitter seeks an injunction barring them from asking for the identity of the person behind @alt_uscis.
It’s not clear what legal reason the Trump administration is seeking to identify @alt_uscis. The @alt_uscis bio states: “Immigration resistance . Team 2.0 1/2 Not the views of DHS or USCIS. Old fellow drank russian soup.” It could be a now-fired USCIS employee and they are looking for a leak, or maybe they just don’t like criticism.
Anyway, it is going to put this administration (as well as social media resistance) to a test. Keep your eyes open.
