Criminal Alien Program (CAP) FOIA Documents

American Immigration Council and AILA’s Connecticut chapter initially sought records related to CAP through a FOIA request to ICE in December 2011. When ICE refused to release records responsive to the request, Plaintiffs filed suit under FOIA for declaratory and injunctive relief to compel the disclosure and release of agency records improperly withheld by DHS and its component ICE. -- In conjunction with the preparation of Jamison Matuszewski’s supplemental declaration, Defendant conducted a two-hour search of ICE’s Office of Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO). The search resulted in 473 responsive pages, which were released to Plaintiffs on October 19, 2012. 303 pages were released in full. The responsive portions of the remaining pages were withheld pursuant to FOIA exemptions 5, 6, 7(C) and (E).
