Case DescriptionThe Immigrant Legal Resource Center submitted a FOIA request to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for records concerning its policies on sanctuary cities. The agency acknowledged receipt of the request. After the agency failed to respond, ILRC filed an administrative appeal of the delay. ICE remanded the appeal, telling ILRC that its request was in the queue for processing. ILRC then filed suit. This appears to be identical to 3:17-cv-6029.
