The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

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.

The included is in response to your request for "Any records of communication with US Customs and Border Protection. I would like the date range for this search to be 1/27/17 to the date this request is processed on."
You request did fall under the following exemptions:
M.G.L. c.66, §10, clearly states "only applies to government records already in existence." "A public record custodian is not required by the public records law to answer questions or create a record in response to a request but may do so at his discretion." The information you requested is not normally searchable with our current records management system, however I did my best to retrieve the information you requested.
Some of the information you requested is exempted under exemption A of M.G.L. c.66, §10 and has been redacted.

Please let me know when you have received the documents.
Please contact me with and further questions.
