From: J Ader

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Florida Sunshine Law, I hereby request the following records:

All threat assessments, field reports, intelligence updates, bulletins, or any other documentation focusing on the following groups and/or campaigns:

- Occupy ICE Tampa - #OccupyICETPA
- Occupy ICE - #OccupyICE
- Abolish ICE - #abolishICE
- Shut Down ICE - #ShutDownICE

Here is a description of the local groups/campaigns:

"About ten people set up camp Thursday evening outside the Immigration and Customs Enforcement office near the Tampa International Airport; they’re upset about how ICE has detained migrants crossing the US border and has separated children from their parents.

WMNF News interviewed Syd Eastman. She is with the Sex Worker Solidarity Network, one of the groups helping to organize Occupy ICE Tampa.

“We’re here at the Cypress [Street] Department of Homeland Security office. It’s 5524 West Cypress [Street]. We’re here because we’re absolutely outraged and disgusted at the way ICE is treating families here in teh United States.

“We believe that this institution is the new Gestapo and needs to be abolished.”

There have been no arrests so far at the Occupy ICE Tampa encampment, but the occupiers have been visited by Tampa Police."
