To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

The consolidated report requested by the executive order "Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements," issued on January 25, 2017. This directed the Secretary of State to compile reports from other federal agencies on "all bilateral and multilateral development aid, economic assistance, humanitarian aid, and military aid" provided to Mexico over the past five years, then deliver a consolidated report to the White House within 60 days of the order.

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 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Dear Harry Cheadle,

This is a follow-up to your email below concerning case control F-2017-12765.

The Department's electronic case notes indicate the case is still open. The searches are still pending. Each case is different and the processing time depends on the complexity of information requested, the location of the information, and the time it takes to review the records.

The estimated completion date (ECD) for this case is April 30, 2018.

ECDs are subject to change and are "strictly" estimates and not intended to be used as "actual" dates of completion, due to various extenuating factors, which are beyond the control of the Branch, which may or may not include coordination with other Agencies during the process (referrals, concurrences, etc.). Interim release dates are provided, as applicable.

We appreciate your continued patience. I hope this information is helpful. If you have further concerns or any questions regarding any FOIA-related matter, please contact the FOIA Requester Service Center (FRSC) at (202) 261-8484, or fax us at (202) 261-8579 or send an email to
