HIRC, Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP, and Justice Action Center file FOIA lawsuit on DACA

On August 3rd, the Harvard Immigration and Refugee Clinical Program joined Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP and the Justice Action Center in filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit in order to obtain information on the federal government’s immigration enforcement against recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The lawsuit is in response to the lack of compliance with a FOIA that the Justice Action Center submitted in January 2020. This FOIA requested documents regarding the federal government’s scheduling of removal proceedings for┬áDACA recipients that have been administratively closed.
