Consistent with McBurney v. Young, the Delaware Department of Justice interprets Delaware's FOIA statute to apply to Delaware citizens only, thereby permitting a public body to deny a FOIA request solely because it is submitted by a non-citizen of Delaware. See 569 U.S. 221 (2013) (determining that Virginia's citizens-only FOIA statute does not violate the Privileges and Immunities Clause or the dormant Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution); Del. Op. Att'y Gen. 18-IB54, 2018 WL 6591819, at *2 (Dec. 5, 2018); Del. Op. Att'y Gen. 18-IB50, 2018 WL 6015765, at *2 (Oct. 12, 2018); Del. Op. Att'y Gen. 18-IB18, 2018 WL 2267112, at *1 (Apr. 6, 2018); Del. Op. Att'y Gen. 17-IB14, 2017 WL 3426252, at *1 (July 6, 2017); Del. Op. Att'y Gen. 16-IB20, 2016 WL 5888776, at *2-6 (Sept. 30, 2016). Therefore, your request is denied and DEMA considers this FOIA request closed
