ICE Slow Walks FOIA About Sanctuary Fines Even 100 Days Into New Administration

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 5 – The Austin Sanctuary Network and the Center For Constitutional Rights sued US Immigration and Customs Enforcement for not complying with the Freedom of Information Act. 

On May 5, On May 5, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lewis J. Liman held a proceeding about the plaintiffs' motion for summary judgment. Inner City Press covered it.  

ICE is slow walking the FOIA request it seems; ICE says it is too burdensome to comply an index of 330 documents.

The underlying FOIA request involves ICE's policy of penalizing those who have sought refuge for deportation in houses of worship.

 As of the plaintiffs' April 30 letter, the civil fines against women in sanctuary have not yet been rescinded.

The case is Austin Sanctuary Network et al v. US Immigration and Customs Enforcement et al, 20-cv-1686 (Liman)
