The Free Speech Coalition joins a coalition of 44 human rights and civil liberties organizations and trade associations writing in response to a statement made by John F. Kelly, Secretary of Homeland Security, at the House Homeland Security Committee hearing on February 7th, 2017, that the Department of Homeland Security would consider requiring visa applicants to provide log-in information (passwords or other credentials) for their social media accounts. The coalition urges the Secretary of Homeland Security to reject any proposal to require anyone to provide log-in information to their accounts as a condition of entry into the United States. Demanding log-in information is a direct direct assault on fundamental rights and would weaken, rather than promote, national security.
