What is ICE?

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (I.C.E) is made up of three (3) offices:
Enforcement and Removal OperationsBeyond Enforcement and Removal OperationsThe Office of the Principal Legal Adviser
"Enforcement and Removal Operations, the best-known division of ICE, arrests, detains and deports unauthorized immigrants already inside the United States.
Under President Barack Obama, the division prioritized removing undocumented immigrants who had committed serious crimes in the United States.
Mr. Trump, after taking office, took a more hard-line stance and directed his administration to target anyone in the country illegally." (The New York Times)

Beyond Enforcement and Removal Operations pursues criminals and terrorists involved in drug trafficking, weapons smuggling, human trafficking, cybercrime, financial crimes and identity fraud. It also looks out for counterproliferation investigations, and targets individuals who illegally try to smuggle military and other high-tech equipment out of the United States. (The New York Times)

The Office of the Principal Legal Adviser employs about 1,400 workers who provide legal support to other employees and represent the government in immigration courts. (The New York Times)


ICE's goal is to protect America from crimes (by illegal immigrants) that threatens the public safety and national security.

What Is the Problem?

Infringement of Civil Rights ("Many of ICE’s removal tactics take away even the right to a fair hearing in court")Infringement of Civil Liberties ("These enforcement programs pose a variety of threats to civil liberties: They implicate the Fourth Amendment’s protection against unreasonable searches and seizures, the constitutional guarantee of due process, and the constitutional guarantee of equal protection and freedom from discrimination based on race, ethnicity, and national origin.")Tearing American Families ApartThe Lost Trust In Law EnforcementRacial ProfilingUse of Excessive ForceThe Start of Dehumanizing Migrants
