Anthony D. Romero

The Executive Director of the national ACLU discusses issues of national security and personal privacy. Anthony D. Romero joins Marcia Franklin during his first visit to Idaho since becoming executive director for the organization last year. He talks about how he views many of the national laws and regulations approved after 9/11, many of which he sees as encroaching on civil liberties. He also discusses his goals for his tenure at ACLU, which include working on reproductive rights issues, privacy concerns and welfare reform.
