Andrew Blake reports:

The Trump administration was sued in federal court Thursday over a new rule requiring nearly all visa applicants to list the handles they use on social media services.

Attorneys representing two documentary film organizations filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court in D.C. against the heads of the Departments of State and Homeland Security.
