Communications

From: Andrew Free


To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

1. Any record reflecting a contingency plan for addressing instances of COVID19 in ICE detention facilities.
2. Any record reflecting a plan to test individuals entering ICE custody for COVID19.
3. Any record reflecting agency discussions, meetings, teleconferences, or other preparations for addressing COVID19 occurrence in ICE Service Processing Centers, Contract Detention Facilities, Inter-Governmental Service Agreement Facilities, or contract facilities for any person detained by ICE longer than 72 hours.
4. Any record reflecting a COVID19 test performed on an ICE detainee between February 1, 2020 and March 9, 2020.
5. Any record reflecting guidance from the Centers for Disease Control regarding ICE's detention activities with respect to COVID19 prevention.
6. Any record reflecting guidance from IHSC to ICE detention and medical contractors.

The following custodians are likely to possess responsive records, however, searches should be tasked to all other offices identified by the FOIA office to be reasonably likely to possess responsive records:
1. ICE - Enforcement and Removal Operations - Immigrant Health Services Corps.
2. ICE - Enforcement and Removal Operations - Office of Detention Policy and Planning
3. ICE HQ - Office of the Director, Assistant Director, Associate Director
4. DHS - Office of the Secretary

I hereby request expediting processing as this request is made on behalf of media requestor clients who are primarily engaged in the dissemination of information to the public, and based on the urgent risk to the health, safety, and due-process rights of individuals who are now or will soon enter into ICE custody.

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.

Sincerely,

Andrew Free
