To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
The materials for the 2018 Immigration Judge conference held from June 11 through June 13, 2018 at Fallls Church, Virginia, including any program(s), agenda(s), memoranda or other guidance documents given to Immigration Judges at this conference, schedule(s), materials, and hand-outs.
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.
To Whom It May Concern:
I wanted to follow up on the following Freedom of Information Act request, copied below, and originally submitted on June 21, 2018. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response, or if further clarification is needed.
Thanks for your help, and let me know if further clarification is needed.
Matthew, we have reviewed all the EOIR documents and are just waiting for DHS to review the presentation they gave. If DHS does not get back to us this week we will send you our response and refer the DHS presentation to them for direct response to you.
A copy of documents responsive to the request.
Thanks so much for your help with this request! I really appreciate it.
May I ask a question? There are several sessions for which the materials have not been provided. Were there no slides, handouts, or other materials for the remainder of these sessions?
Hi Matthew, no problem. We asked LERS (Legal Education and Research Services Division) who ran the training program to provide all the materials, this is what they provided. I did not attend much of the training but I did attend at least one session where there were neither slides nor handouts.
My intention is to post this entire folder as a proactive release, just need time to get to non-deadline items, as you know we are pressed pretty hard with requests right now. In the future I would love to have LERS post these in real-time so they do not even have to come through FOIA.
Thank you again. Really great to have these.
Have a nice morning.
