Filmmakers sue Trump administ. Say new social media rule for visa stifles speech

International Documentary Assn. and Doc Society filed suit against new visa rules from Trump administration on behalf of 2,700 filmmakers from 53 countries. The new rule, part of the administration’s ’extreme vetting’, require people applying for a US visa to disclose all social media handles used in the past five years. Filmmakers say this would stifle free speech or exclude them from US.

I see no problem with this, so long as they're only demanding screen names, and not user IDs and passwords. It's not an invasion of privacy, because the gov will only be able to see what their screen name has posted publicly.
