JudgeJudge Gonzalo P. Curiel
PlaintiffThe Children's Advocacy Institute
Case DescriptionThe Children's Advocacy Institute submitted FOIA requests to the Office of Refugee Resettlement at the Administration for Children and Families and the Department of Homeland Security for records concerning the number of adults detained for immigration-related offenses, including whether they were accompanied by minor children, for each month beginning in January 2018. The agencies acknowledged receipt of the request. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement told the Institute that because its request did not identify individuals it could not search for the data. The Institute filed an administrative appeal of that decision. U.S. Customs and Border Protection asked the Institute to clarify its request. The Institute did so. After hearing nothing further from any of the agencies, the Children's Advocacy Institute filed suit.
