They can petition for suit if they want but the constitution is aimed at the government to prevent infringement of the rights of citizens.

They were not citizens.

Good luck.

I know right! I've done the same and still in the same boat as you! This all comes from Reuters, the news outlet every other news outlets copy/pastes from.

So they're suing the US gov't and not the individuals?

Actually, there is good reason for the law. Here's a fair discussion of the history and pros and cons of the law.
