WASHINGTON (AP) - Virginia’s attorney general says he’s concerned that Customs and Border Patrol agents have violated a court order that guarantees access to attorneys for people detained at Dulles International Airport.

The court order was issued late Saturday by a federal judge in Alexandria, Virginia. Attorney General Mark Herring said Monday on WAMU-FM that his office is looking into reports that CPB agents violated the order.

On Sunday, CPB officials at Dulles declined to speak to four members of Congress from Maryland and Virginia who sought a meeting to discuss treatment of detainees.

President Donald Trump’s executive order banning immigration from seven majority-Muslim countries resulted in a few people being sent back home when they arrived at Dulles on Saturday. On Sunday, it was not clear if anyone was being detained.
