These protests occurred January 28th 2017 and January 29th 2017. I would also request department Telex messages for the January 28th 2017 and January 29th 2017 protests. I would also like any written communications with the Governor's Office, Homeland Security, or the US Customs and Border Patrol during the aforementioned time frame.

As a member of the news media working for MuckRock News I request that a fee waiver for my request be granted. My work has been published by national outlets. My work for Motherboard can be viewed at the following link:

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
