To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
1) All "statistical or aggregated arrest data," as referenced in Section XI of 287(g) program memorandums of agreement, submitted to Immigration and Customs Enforcement since Jan. 1, 2009 by agencies participating in the 287(g) program.
I ask that all fees be waived as I am a journalist employed by the Lowell Sun and I intend to use the requested records to publish articles in the public interest and not for any commercial purposes. I also ask for expedited processing of this request as law enforcement agencies across the country are currently considering entering the 287(g) program, and their decisions will have immediate and life-changing ramifications -- such as the incarceration and/or deportation of family members -- for millions of Americans. Before agency officials or voters make decisions regarding the 287(g) program, which is currently garnering an unprecedented level of public interest, they should be supplied with all the information at the easy disposal of ICE. It should be noted how simple this request is: the requested record is a an already compiled spreadsheet that requires no redaction.
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.
