Wisconsin Rep. Mark Pocan posted up outside the Immigration and Customs Enforcement headquarters Wednesday morning to hand out “missing” fliers for a Freedom of Information Act request he sent the agency in October. The FOIA inquiry was about ICE arrests in Wisconsin last year. “Hi there, sir, is there a board inside for like lost cats and stuff?” Pocan asked a man walking into the ICE building as he attempted to hand him the “missing” flier. An ICE official said the agency has provided Pocan with “an interim response.” “To date, we have issued two official letters of response to his original October 2018 letter,” the official said, requesting anonymity because it would be inappropriate to publicly discuss an individual’s FOIA request.
