ICE MOUs/MOAs (Nebraska State Patrol)

Emma North-Best filed this request with the Nebraska State Patrol of Nebraska.
Multi Request ICE MOUs/MOAs
Est. Completion None
Fix Required


From: Emma North-Best

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Nebraska Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Copies of any Memoranda of Agreement (MOAs), Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs), memoranda of agreement or other liaison, information sharing or prisoner/detainee transfer agreements or delegations of authority with or involving Immigration and Customs Enforcement signed or otherwise put into effect between March 1, 2003 and the present. This includes but is not limited to any agreements entered into under or a result of Section 287(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

I am a member of the news media and request classification as such. I have previously written about the government and its activities, with some reaching over 100,000 readers. As such, as I have a reasonable expectation of publication and my editorial and writing skills are well established. In addition, I discuss and comment on the files online and make them available through non-profits such as the Internet Archive and MuckRock, disseminating them to a large audience. While my research is not limited to this, a great deal of it, including this, focuses on the activities and attitudes of the government itself. As such, it is not necessary for me to demonstrate the relevance of this particular subject in advance.

As my primary purpose is to inform about government activities by reporting on it and making the raw data available, I request that fees be waived.

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

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 4 business days, as the statute requires.

Dear Ms. Best:

In order to facilitate your request, please provide an email address or a mailing address so that we can respond and/or fulfill your records request directly to you.

We will no longer be replying to anyone's request through MuckRock, as production of public records to a non-person third party is not provided for by statute. Should MuckRock seek production of these documents they will need to submit their own request.

You can visit our website then click on the Services Tab and make a public records request yourself. You may also fax a request to 402-479-4996 or mail a request to Nebraska State Patrol, Legal Division, P.O. Box 94907, Lincoln, NE 68509
