2. Copies of any and all revisions made to the list of methodologies used to count southwest border deaths between 2005 and 2015.

3. The age, sex, body condition, coordinates where a body was located, country of origin, and cause of death of all migrant remains found by Border Patrol in fiscal years 2005-2015, per sector.

4. Of the remains that have been identified, the number, per year, of migrants that had at least one prior formal deportation on their immigration record.

5. Any email or mail communications between coroners’ offices and Border Patrol in fiscal years 2005-2015, per sector.

7. The number of rescue beacons deployed in each Border Patrol sector in the southwest border zone, the frequency with which rescue beacons were activated, and the number of migrants rescued by Border Patrol in a given year as the result of rescue beacon activation, for fiscal years 2005-2015.

7. The number of BORSTAR agents per sector for each fiscal year since it was created in 1999 through 2015.

8. The total number of BORSTAR agents nationwide for each year.

9. The number of 911 distress calls received by Border Patrol (per sector) and the number of migrants rescued as a result of Border Patrol response to these calls for fiscal years 2005-2015.

10. A description of the procedures in place to addend to calls from family members who report someone missing in U.S. borderlands.

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

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. 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.
