The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Freedom of Information Act Office (FOIA) will have limited access for processing incoming physical mail due to the national response to COVID-19. It is highly recommended that all correspondence regarding FOIA requests be sent electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org to avoid delay in processing.
It has come to the attention of ICE that the call number to the ICE FOIA Office has been compromised and improperly used to target individuals. If you have received such a call or text message, please disregard it. Please know that the ICE FOIA Office does not directly call individuals to obtain personal information, facilitate transactions, or demand money. ICE is aware and is taking appropriate action to resolve the situation.
The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requires agencies to make various types of records available for public inspection in electronic form. These records are available through this page.
