Politically Motivated ICE Hotline Turns Neighbors, Friends and Even Spouses into Informants
By Jennifer Wadsworth

According to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), a research center at Syracuse University, crisis is the new norm at ICE’s FOIA office. “Answers to some requests are needlessly delayed in violation of timeliness requirements in the law,” TRAC found, according to an assessment last month. “The quality of some responses that requesters receive surely suffer in such an intense push to close cases. And the pressure on FOIA staff to cut corners to speed case closures can hardly make the office a desirable place to work.”
