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

On behalf of the #DetentionKills Network and its fiscal sponsor, Al Otro Lado, I hereby request finalized copies of ICE's monthly budget spreadsheet for ICE's custody management operations.

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

Part 5, ICE processes FOIA requests according to their order of receipt. Although ICE’s goal is to respond within 20 business days of receipt of your request, the FOIA does permit a 10- day extension of this time period.

If you care to narrow the scope of your request, please contact our office. We will make every effort to comply with your request in a timely manner. Provisions of the FOIA allow us to recover part of the cost of complying with your request.  We shall charge you for records in accordance with the DHS Interim FOIA regulations, as they apply to media requesters.  As a media requester, you will be charged 10 cents per page for duplication; the first 100 pages are free.  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 program offices within ICE for responsive records.

I hereby appeal the agency’s facially inadequate search. ICE’s response indicates that the agency does not keep a monthly budget in a spreadsheet. Really? I have seen them.

This is an arbitrary and capricious withholding.
