TRAC Sues DHS Over FOIA Classification

"TRAC co-directors Susan B. Long and David Burnham have filed a lawsuit alleging that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) violated the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by blocking their access to data.  Long and Burnham say ICE unfairly classified the research organization as a commercial entity, thus subjecting them to fees associated with gathering and sharing the requested data." - Angilee Shah, PRI, May 22, 2014.
