A New 287(g) Program

Following a review of the 287(g) program, the Department of Homeland Security has announced that it will revamp the program according to new U.S. Immigration Control and Enforcement priorities.

Top on ICE's new priority list is removing undocumented immigrants with criminal records from neighborhoods, provided that those criminals be prosecuted on the original crimes that required them to be taken into custody. Additionally, 11 new local law enforcement agencies have signed with the program, promoting more consistency and oversight in immigration law enforcement throughout the nation.
