To Whom It May Concern:

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

We are seeking certain statistics and data maintained by the EOIR about BIA appeals filed in 2018. I would like a report that lists the following:

1. Total number of appeals filed with the BIA in 2018.
2. How many of or what percentage of those were filed by the DHS.
3. How many of or what percentage of the appeals filed by the DHS were granted (reversed or remanded the IJ's decision).
4. How many of or what percentage of the appeals filed by the respondent were granted (reversed or remanded).
3. Total number of appeals adjudicated by the BIA in 2018.

It would be easiest if this could be generated as a report from the CASE database and could be produced in spreadsheet format (not as a PDF) so that we can work with the data. If that is a problem or if there is any concern with production, please contact me.

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.

Sincerely,

Matthew Hoppock
