The Communications and Legislative Affairs Division (CLAD) serves as the Executive Office for Immigration Review’s liaison with Congress, the news media, and other interested parties by communicating accurate and timely information about the agency’s activities and programs. CLAD handles all queries from Congress and the news media and handles all interview requests in order to present a unified voice for EOIR and to ensure consistency with the Attorney General’s messages. CLAD shares important information about EOIR with:
- Congress, the news media, and other interested parties by preparing and distributing news releases and other press materials. You can access these materials at https://www.justice.gov/eoir/news-and-information
- EOIR employees by compiling, posting on the Intranet, and notifying EOIR employees via email of a daily briefing of news stories related to critical immigration issues. CLAD notifies all of EOIR via e-mail when the briefing is posted.
