Dear Mr. Lipton:

The Office of the Attorney General (“OAG”) will review its files. However, a quick Google search reveals that the Eden Detention Facility is a privately-run prison contracted with the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Again, I do not understand why this request is being sent to the OAG. If you have additional information that would help us understand your request, we would appreciate that information. Thank you.
