On June 7, 2018, attorneys from the Immigrants' Rights Clinic at Stanford Law School alongside the National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild filed this lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement in the U.S. District Court of Northern California. The plaintiff sought declaratory and injunctive relief under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), claiming that DHS and ICE improperly withheld records related to the Trump administration’s immigration prosecutorial discretion policies and practices. DHS and ICE failed to respond to a request for records sent on March 2, 2017.

The case is ongoing. The case was certified for Alternative Dispute Resolution in August 2018 and an initial Case Management Conference was scheduled for December 13, 2018.
