Hello,

I would like to clarify this request. Specifically, this is a request for:

"All contracts (and their amendments) and memorandums of understanding or other agreements entered into by the City of Adelanto with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement regarding services and activities related to the Adelanto Detention Facility."

This request is for agreements (including NDAs), etc. that ICE has entered into with the governing body of the City of Adelanto or any of its subsidiary divisions regarding the operation of Adelanto Detention Facility. The request to which you referred in your previous communication (FOIA Number 2015-ICFO-69562) is a request for agreements entered into by ICE with the contractor of the facility.

In light of the clarification, I ask that you please assign this request a separate tracking number.

Thank you so much for your help on this and all of my requests.

Best wishes,
Beryl C.D. Lipton
