On September 7, 2022, IIUSA filed a Complaint against USCIS in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Plaintiffs brought this action under the Freedom of Information Act (“FOIA”) to compel United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) to comply with a FOIA request filed by Plaintiff relating to USCIS’s policies and practices in adjudicating source-of-funds issues. The request was filed by IIUSA back on July 18, 2022, and USCIS failed to respond to it. As the Complaint alleges, the records requested in IIUSA’s July 18, 2022 FOIA request are critical to IIUSA’s ability to properly educate its members on current USCIS policy and practice with respect to the adjudication of source-of-funds issues, as well as how (if at all) those policies have changed over time.
