FOIA: USCIS Processing of Afghan Humanitarian Cases

On June 23, 2022, IRAP in partnership with the American Immigration Council (“the Council”) and Winston & Strawn, filed FOIA litigation challenging USCIS’ failure to respond to two FOIA requests seeking information about USCIS’s processing of Afghan humanitarian cases. Specifically, the requests seek records related to USCIS’s processing and adjudication of Afghan humanitarian parole applications and fee waiver requests related to such applications, as well as current policies regarding USCIS’s processing of Afghan refugee and asylee applications. To date, IRAP and the Council have not received any records in response to their requests.
