NPR's Barbara Bradley reports on the legal challenge to the secret immigration hearings that the Justice Department is holding, as part of the terrorism investigation. Two Detroit newspapers and the American Civil Liberties Union filed the lawsuit, on the grounds that secret hearings are unconstitutional. The case involves Rabih Haddad, a Muslim cleric who's charged with overstaying his visa, not with any terrorist crime. He's been denied bail, and his immigration hearings have been closed to the public.
