Freedom of Information Act

The Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) processes requests for the Immigration Courts, the Board of Immigration Appeals and the Office of the Chief Administrative Hearing Officer. EOIR posts documents from these offices without the need to make a FOIA request.

FOIA Processed Documents

Documents in this category have been disclosed, in full or with redactions, pursuant to previous FOIA requests. While all components post "frequently requested records," or those which have been released three or more times to FOIA requesters, they may also post other FOIA-processed documents which are likely to be of interest to the public.

Proactive EOIR Disclosures

Many documents are available to the public without having to make a FOIA request. These documents are called “proactive disclosures”.

Operational Documents

Documents in this category consist of policy statements, staff manuals and instructions, final opinions and orders, which are always available without making a FOIA request.  The proactive disclosure of these records allows you to instantly access information which relates to the Department’s day-to-day operations.
