Thank you.

I wish to appeal this determination. It is almost impossible that Kevin McAleenan never sent, received, or copied an email containing the key-string "congress" (and the other keys). Especially because Kevin McAleenan has been the subject of numerous debates within Congress and brought up in many Congressional hearings.

Thank you.

To Whom It May Concern:

My name is Lauren Staiti and I am the FOIA attorney for the ALJ Docketing Center and coordinate DHS FOIA appeals for my program. Ms. Meus forwarded me your email for response. It appears when my office remanded this case DHS assigned it a new request number. Your original appeal 2019-HQAP-00390 was closed on February 12, 2020, please refer to that final letter for further instructions regarding that appeal. If the regulatory time from DHS’ apparent reassignment has passed you may file another appeal or pursue it in District Court if the circumstances surrounding this case allow for it.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions.
