DOJ has list of detainees under Trump travel ban

The Justice Department has complied with a Brooklyn judge’s order to compile a list of 746 names of people who’d been detained at airports last month during the chaotic travel-ban rollout, but immigration advocates complained in court Friday that it’s essentially useless.
