TRAC Co-Directors File Complaint Against ICE

The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University announced that its co-directors (Susan B. Long and David Burnham) filed a suit against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for violating the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), the Administrative Practices Act (APA), and administrative rules from both agencies.

In their complaint document, Long and Burnham dispute ICE’s claim that when using ICE’s data to research immigration laws, they are doing so to collect a profit. They argue that TRAC provides news organizations, academic groups, and the government with data about immigration enforcement on its website for noncommercial purposes only.
