Case Description: 

In September 2017, several individuals and immigrant rights organizations across the county requested records from ICE concerning “Operation Mega,” which news reports indicated had been planned as a nationwide enforcement operation to apprehend noncitizens that would target several thousand noncitizens. Public Citizen Litigation Group represents three FOIA requesters—the National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild, Mijente Support Committee, and Detention Watch Network—in a lawsuit seeking to compel ICE to provide responsive records.
