Supreme Court asked to pause limits on White House social media requests

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to pause a lower court’s decision to allow the White House to ignore social media requests from non-U.S. citizens. The request comes after the Trump administration introduced new rules in January that required users to be U.S. citizens or permanent residents to receive official responses on social media. The ACLU argued that by forcing non-U.S. citizens to register as Americans just to communicate with the White House, it was violating their First Amendment rights to free speech. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled on February 27th that the restrictions did not violate the First Amendment. The Supreme Court could take up the case at anytime, but the ACLU has asked for a pause until a decision is reached.
