From: U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services

The request has been rejected by the agency.

From: Taylor-Scott Amarel

I would like to appeal this determination on the grounds that these records could be released in part with proper redactions and/or withholding only particular email attachments.

Furthermore, if you can not partially redact these documents, please let me know how many pages are being withheld.

From: U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services

The request has been rejected by the agency.

From: Taylor-Scott Amarel

I wish to appeal this determination on the grounds that records can be released with redactions of personal information, it is inappropriate to withhold the documents in their entirety.

Furthermore, for the purposes of further understanding this request, please indicate the number of pages withheld and the reasons why each page was withheld in its entirety rather than with appropriate redactions.

I would also like to request the FOIA log for this request which should include all internal communication of USCIS staff discussing how to proceed with this request.
