Advocates File FOIA Suit Over Family Separation Information

Immigrant advocates filed a suit against the Trump administration Wednesday in Washington, D.C., federal court seeking to compel the government to respond to its Freedom of Information Act requests for information regarding family separation policies, guidance and data.

The suit was filed in response to immigration agencies’ failure to respond to FOIA requests made April 3 by the American Immigration Council, National Immigrant Justice Center, Women’s Refugee Commission, Kids in Need of Defense, and the Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project.
