I tried ordering an A-File via a FOIA request, but I was told I was
only allowed to request the file through their Genealogy Program, the

According to the FOIA request website, any immigration documents over 100 years old must be requested thru the Genealogy program, which requires payment of a fee. That should mean any documents from 1921 and later are available for FOIA requests. Were your requests for older documents?
