This FOIA request was for employment records for a former DOJ employee who worked for either the INS or the border patrol in the 1980s. Both were part of the DOJ at that time.

The denial notice says I should direct my request to "INS - 20 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington, DC 20529."

Respectfully, the INS has not existed since 2003, when it was dissolved by the passage of the Homeland Security Act. The DOJ should have its employment records for its own employees. It appears the agency has not conducted a complete search for the records because it was under the mistaken impression the INS (which does not exist) should have them.

The Civil Rights Division would not have records responsive to your request. You may wish to direct your request to the Department of Homeland Security and/or the Office of Personnel Management.
