CBP Releases Officer's Reference Tool Documents

AILA, represented by the American Immigration Council and Foley & Lardner LLP, filed a lawsuit to compel CBP compliance with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), and to request release of the CBP Officer's Reference Tool (ORT). The ORT replaced the CBP Inspector's Field Manual (IFM), which previously provided guidance regarding the inspection and admission of individuals into the United States at U.S. ports of entry. AILA seeks to ensure that CBP makes a copy of the ORT available to the public, as it did with the IFM.

AILA is posting the memos, guides, manuals, Standard Operating Procedures, and more, that is being released pursuant to the FOIA request. Given the large volume of documents received in response to this FOIA action, documents will be posted on a rolling basis. Check this page frequently for updates.
