TRAC: ICE’s FOIA Office Backlog Shows Ballooning Wait Times

Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse: “The median time FOIA requests have been waiting unanswered in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)’s backlog has climbed 64 percent in just the last sixty days. During this period according to ICE records, receipts of new FOIA requests and monthly closure numbers have not noticeably changed so the rise may reflect management problems in ICE’s FOIA office. Currently half of ICE’s backlog of pending requests have been waiting for more than 105 days unanswered.  This is the latest FOIA Project report, with more details on the ICE FOIA request backlog.”
