Threats against judges in travel ban cases leads to increased security
WASHINGTON -- Threats against more than one judge involved in legal challenges to President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration have prompted federal and local law enforcement agencies to temporarily increase security protection for some of them, according to law enforcement officials. CNN did not learn how specific the threats were, but law enforcement agencies treated them seriously and out of an abundance of caution, the U.S. Marshals Service and local police increased patrols and protective officers to provide security for some of the judges, the officials said.
