April 19, 2019

The James Madison Project and Daily Beast reporters Noah Shachtman and Betsy Woodruff submitted FOIA requests to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the Transportation Safety Administration, and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services for records concerning instructions for implementing the recently reinstated travel ban. The agencies acknowledged receipt of the requests, but after hearing nothing further from the agencies, the James Madison Project, Shachtman, and Woodruff filed suit.
