Is FBI Racially Profiling? ACLU Loses Court Battle to Find Out

The FBI does not have to publicly release records on its use of ethnic and racial data, the Star-Ledger reports.

The ACLU sued for the records, worried that FBI guidelines foe 2008 were encouraging racial profiling.

The guidelines were revised to allow agents to engage in “limited” racial and ethnic profiling, the Star-Ledger reported.

The U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the ACLU’s claims, saying that the FBI had “amply justified” the withholding of the records.

“We are deeply disappointed by this decision, which denies the public’s right to know which New Jersey communities the FBI is spying on through its secretive racial mapping intelligence program,” said Nusrat Choudhury, an ACLU National Security Project attorney who helped litigate the case.
