At some point in early 2017 after the Trump Administration came in to office, the Administration began removing information from government web sites. According to the Washington Post, the “Trump administration has removed or tucked away a wide variety of information that until recently was provided to the public, limiting access, for instance, to disclosures about workplace violations, energy efficiency and animal-welfare abuses. …” The US Coast Guard previously published monthly updated information on the US Coast Guard’s Alien Migrant Interdiction Operations dating from October 1981 (beginning of Fiscal Year (FY) 1982). I have been attempting to obtain and publish the data by making regular Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to the US Coast Guard which will be published here as they become available.
FOIA Response Date: 15 June 2017 ; Covering Period FY 1982 to 01 Feb. 2017: USCG FOIA Document
