The Attorneys General from 10 states - Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Louisana, Nebraska, South Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia, along with the Governor of Idaho - sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions requesting the Secretary of Homeland Security "phase out the DACA program" by September 5, 2017.  They also seek to amend the complaint in Texas v. United States, No. 1:14-cv-254 (S. D. Tex.) to challenge the lawfulness of the DACA program.

The United States has repeatedly defended the legal validity of the program, but it remains unclear if the Attorney General will continue to defend the program.  The Attorney General has expressed his opposition to the program in the past.

We've filed this records request to get access to records regarding communications between personnel of the Office of the South Carolina Attorney General and the Sessions Justice Department and the Trump administration regarding the DACA program.

See the FOIA request below.
