Your perfected request was received in the DHS Privacy Office and transferred to DHS' National Protection and Programs Directorate on April 14, 2017, for direct response to you. We apologize for the delay in our response.

We will construe the submission of your request as an agreement to pay up to $25.00. You will be contacted before any further fees are accrued.

We have queried the appropriate component of DHS for responsive records. If any responsive records are located, they will be reviewed for determination of releasability.
