The lawsuit, filed by five Americans whose personal data has been entered into anti-terror databases for engaging in lawful behavior, aims to impose a "permanent injunction" on a government program that "targets First Amendment-protected activity, encourages racial and religious profiling, and violates federal law." Since 2013, over 35,000 US citizens have had their personal information stored away on terrorism databases – like the FBI's eGuardian – where they remain on file for up to 30 years.
