WASHINGTON – “The men and women of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security worked tirelessly with our national security partners to develop baseline information sharing requirements to ensure that our vetting and screening procedures for foreign nationals ensure the safety of the American people from national security threats and public safety concerns. These requirements are essential to securing the homeland. While we will comply with any lawful judicial order, we look forward to prevailing in this matter upon appeal.”
