Request your Immigration File using FOIA
The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a federal law that makes government information accessible to the general public. FOIA was enacted in 1966. The law is based on the presumption that individuals have a right to know what their government is doing and that governmental agencies have a duty to provide full disclosure of all records that are not specifically and reasonably exempt. FOIA applies to all 15 departments, including the Department of Homeland Security, and 73 other federal agencies within the executive branch ... of the U.S. government. such as the Environmental Protection Agency and Federal Reserve System. The Freedom of Information Act does not apply to the President, Congress or the courts. FOIA does not apply to state governments, even though each of the 50 states has its own freedom-of-information laws, as do many cities. The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) also applies to USCIS immigration records. This means that any person, including foreign nationals, U.S. permanent residents (Green Card holders), and U.S. citizens can request a copy their USCIS files. There are specific procedures to follow when requesting your immigration records under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The procedures to request your USCIS file are described in detailed in the FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) - How to Request a Copy of Your USCIS File.Show more
