A group of travelers are being evacuated from the United States after a deadly terror attack.
The American Civil Liberties Union and the National Immigration Law Center say they are concerned that the U.S. government is not adequately protecting Americans traveling abroad.
The government has been taking steps to bolster its security at American airports, including placing extra security officers in each of the nation’s major airports, increasing airport screenings and screening travelers on their way in and out of the country.
But the ACLU says there is still a long way to go.
“I think we should all be very concerned about the potential for terrorism and our ability to travel safely in the United [States],” said ACLU executive director Sarah Kate Ellis.
Ellis said many people in the U, particularly in the Midwest and South, have been subjected to an influx of terror-related travel in recent years.
She said the U’s airport screening system is working, and that there have been “a number of incidents of terrorists attempting to enter the country” while trying to get into the U., including a bomb attack in a Minneapolis-St. Paul airport in 2015 that killed six people.
Ellises said the government needs to step up its efforts to protect Americans traveling to and from the U before they face a repeat of what happened in 2016.
“People need to know that if they are going to be subjected to this kind of attack, they should be ready to be in the air and be able to get home, regardless of where they are,” Ellis said.
Elles said she believes the Trump administration has made progress since the election, including a plan to allow travel to the U from certain countries.
But she also said the president’s executive order to temporarily suspend immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries has not been fully implemented.
Ellise said it is unclear how long the travel ban will remain in effect, and said it could be temporarily extended.
Ellies also noted that while the government has expanded its efforts overseas, there are still many places in the country where travelers can be vulnerable to being terrorized.
“The travel ban is a big problem.
We have an airport screening problem.
So it’s really hard to say how long this will last, and when it’s going to end,” Ellis told CNN.”
It’s not an easy problem to solve.
We need to take the time to make sure we’re doing everything we can to ensure that we have the best safeguards in place.”
