OPINION
_________________________

CLAY, Circuit Judge. Plaintiffs Nasser Beydoun and Maan Bazzi each separately sued various federal government officials challenging their placement on the federal government’s “Selectee List,” which designates them for enhanced screening at the airport. Asserting that their Fifth Amendment right to due process was violated, Plaintiffs sought declaratory and injunctive relief, with the ultimate aim of having their names removed from the government’s enhanced screening list. However, in both cases, the district court dismissed their complaints and, in Beydoun’s case, determined that any amendment would be futile. Plaintiffs appealed, and we consolidated the cases for purposes of oral argument, given the similarity of the facts and arguments presented in both cases. For the reasons set forth below, we AFFIRM the judgments of the district court.
