Border agents may have violated travel ban

Customs and Border Protection agents were "caught by surprise" by President Trump's original travel ban against majority-Muslim nations and may have violated two separate court orders while implementing it, a government report released Friday concluded.

A Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Inspector General report found that only two senior department officials saw a draft of the travel ban before Trump signed it during a ceremony at the Pentagon last Jan. 27. Most employees only heard about it from media reports in the days leading up to the signing.

That led to a rushed implementation by border agents processing incoming travelers at U.S. airports, and those who pre-screen travelers at foreign airports boarding U.S.-bound flights.
