RE: PUBLIC RECORDS REQUEST of October 29, 2019, Reference # R003071-103019.
Dear Freddy Martinez,
Thank you for contacting the Cook County Sheriff's Office ("CCSO") pursuant to the Illinois Freedom of Information Act ("FOIA"), 5 ILCS 140/1 et seq. (2012).
Your request mentioned: I request an electronic copy of every I-247A form, which are accompanied by I-200 and/or I-205 forms sent to the Cook County Jail by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement. For each I-247A form, which are accompanied by I-200 and/or I-205, I request a copy of the outcome of the request.
Per Cook County Ordinance uploaded at the link below, the CCSO does not track or honor ICE detainers. Individual detainers are placed in an inmate's paper mittimus pack, but we do not track detainers on an aggregate level and therefore are unable to pull such records without searching the mittimus packs of every detainee who has come into CCDOC custody. We process up to one hundred thousand individuals every year.

I understand that you're not obligated to answer questions in response to FOIA requests. However, can you clarify how the jail *receives* the I-247As? Are they sent via fax or email or another electronic means? I wish to send follow up requests and I need the information to form my request.
All the best,

Cook County Sheriff FOIA office,
I wanted to follow up on this request and continue to seek clarification. As I mentioned on the phone, it seems implausible that the jail received physical I-247A form from ICE. While your office explained that the physical form travels with inmates, it is still unclear how ICE *transmits* the forms to your office. I have previously stated that I believe electronic records exist that are responsive to my request. I've contacted your office multiple times to confer but I haven't heard back yet.
Please feel free to call me at 202 332 6736 to discuss further.
To Whom It May Concern:
I wanted to follow up on the following Illinois Freedom of Information Act. request, copied below, and originally submitted on Oct. 28, 2019. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response.
Thanks for your help, and let me know if further clarification is needed.
