An ICE Enforcement and Removal officer told Breitbart Texas that agents were told to redact the information before submission to Immigration Courts or the public as part of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
Neonnettle The anonymous source said the insertions are meant to hide the truth when criminal aliens are released instead of deported after crimes. The emails from the Acting Assistant Director of ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations reads in part:
As information related to enforcement priority determinations may not be final at the time a case is processed and may further develop over time, please do not include this information in the I-213 narrative.
When this information is included in the I-213 please be aware of the need to redact that information when it is filed with EOIR/Immigration Judges or turned over in FOIA requests.
