To Whom It May Concern:

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

1. Any record of your agency or any component thereof creating, receiving, or being notified of a Significant Incident Report taken by any Health and Human Services official from or involving a unaccompanied minor child in federal custody (whether ORR, BP, or ICE) raising complaints, allegations, or factual material suggestion violations of any law, regulation, or policy by Border Patrol agents or contractors.

2. Any record your agency or any component thereof created, received, or was notified of relating to follow-up or investigation results arising from an SIR described in Item 1 above.

I hereby request expedited processing of this request based on the significant public interest in government wrongdoing, as well as the immediate risk to the lives, safety, and substantial due process rights of migrant children in federal custody.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter.
