Case DescriptionThe Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Alianza Americas, and National TPS Alliance submitted FOIA requests to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Department of State for records concerning the Trump administration's policy on temporary protected status. The requesters also asked for a fee waiver. The agencies acknowledged receipt of the requests and granted the requests for a fee waiver. The requesters filed administrative appeals after the agencies failed to respond within the statutory time limit. DHS asked the requesters to narrow the scope of the request. The requesters asked for an explanation of DHS's request to narrow the scope of the request. After hearing nothing further from any of the agencies, the requesters filed suit.
