Trump Administration FOIA cases

This page collects Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) litigation pertaining to the Trump administration’s immigration policy. In all cases, plaintiffs argued that the administration failed to release records requested under FOIA. Record requests related to a variety of immigration policies, including new vetting policies, the ban on refugees from certain nations, and border wall projects. We will make available any documents responsive to the FOIA request made public as a result of these suits.

The below cases represent a special subset of the full Clearinghouse collection.
