Help EFF Investigate Invasive Travel Screening Program

For several years, the Department of Homeland Security has been treating innocent travelers like suspected terrorists by using the Automated Targeting System (ATS) to assign them "risk assessment" scores. This invasive data-mining program was only recently revealed to the public, and EFF is attempting to document the system's effect on law-abiding individuals.

If you have experienced difficulties when entering or leaving the United States, we'd like to hear from you. We are particularly interested in hearing from folks who have had repeated problems, or have been told by government agents that they are on a "list" or that there is some unexplained "problem" that needs to be resolved. Please share your story with us by writing travel@eff.org and providing as much detail as possible. We will treat all responses confidentially and may contact you to follow-up.
