USCIS Expands Digital Delivery of FOIA Requests

USCIS announced the latest phase in the expansion of its FOIA Immigration Records System (FIRST). USCIS online account holders may now submit FOIA requests online for their own records and will soon be able to submit online requests for non-A-File material.

Provides that the alien “shall have access” to non-confidential A-file documents

The court found that INA §240(c)(2) which provides that the alien “shall have access” to non-confidential A-file documents compelled the government to provide such documents to Petitioner without requiring him to file a FOIA request. (Dent v. Holder, 11/9/10)
