Holding the Executive Branch Accountable to the People
(January 19, 2017 — Washington, D.C.) - On behalf of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) announced today that it has filed a lawsuit against the Department of State (DOS) to compel it to turn over records concerning, among other things, immigration benefit, passport and visa fraud and possible collusion between U.S. government officials, foreign countries, immigration lawyers and open-borders activists.
IRLI Executive Director, Dale L. Wilcox, commented, “Once again the Obama Administration, which will be remembered as the least transparent administration in history, has stonewalled several FAIR open records requests and we are forced to sue to compel compliance with the law.” Wilcox continued, “The records we expect to receive in response to our suit we hope will raise public awareness regarding the systemic fraud and collusion in our immigration system.”
The case is entitled, Federation for American Immigration Reform v. U.S. Department of State, Civil No. 1:17-cv-00118, and was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The complaint can be found here.
