Feds: We Can't Meet Court's FOIA Demands in Detention Lawsuit

"Federal prosecutors say they can't meet a judge's demands they quickly deliver documents about thousands of immigrants who've been detained nationwide for months or years as their immigration statuses are reviewed.  The office of U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara laid out the government's position to U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman in a letter made public Wednesday.  The letter, dated Tuesday, came five days after the judge criticized the government, saying it had been on notice since the American Civil Liberties Union requested the documents nearly five years ago." - AP, Dec. 25, 2013.
