Quotable Quotes

"Tis our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world.."
 - George Washington (1796)

"Commerce with all nations, alliance with none, should be our motto."
 - Thomas Jefferson (1799)

"The ongoing migration of persons to the United States in violation of our laws is a serious national problem detrimental to the interests of the United States." - Ronald Reagan, 1981

"Honor never grows old, and honor rejoices the heart of age. It does so because honor is, finally, about defending those noble and worthy things that deserve defending, even if it comes at a high cost. In our time, that may mean social disapproval, public scorn, hardship, persecution, or as always, even death itself. The question remains: What is worth defending? What is worth dying for? What is worth living for?" - William J. Bennett in a lecture to the U. S. Naval Academy, Nov 24, 1997

Section 287(g) - Immigration and Nationality Act
Frequently Asked Questions

This Document copied from ICE website on 04-24-2009.


Should my law enforcement agency request to participate in the 287(g) program?
Before formally submitting a request to participate in the program, it is recommended that you meet with your local ICE office to determine if the 287(g) program is right for your agency. The 287(g) program has certainly seen the success through its partnerships, but the agency offers many other programs via ICE ACCESS that might be better suited for your needs. Your local ICE office representatives will be able to outline the resources available in your area and determine the most effective and sustainable way to partner with ICE.

Who Will Pay for Training?
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will provide the training instruction and materials. The requesting agency is required to pay their officers’ salary.

What Are the Requirements for an Officer to Be Selected?
The officer must be a U.S. citizen, must have a current background investigation completed, must have a minimum of two years’ experience in their current position, and no disciplinary actions may be pending.

Who Will Pay for the Information Technology (Computer and Network Systems) Needed to Access the ICE Databases?
ICE currently provides the necessary computers to access ICE databases; however, connectivity costs are dependent on the network connectivity solution that is required. In some cases ICE will utilize the LEA's own communication lines - (phone, DSL, site owned T-1/T-3, etc) and the LEA will be responsible for covering any installation and monthly re-occurring costs associated with the LEA line.

What Role Does ICE Play with 287(g)-Trained State and Local Officers?
ICE will supervise the 287(g)-trained officers while conducting immigration enforcement activities.

Can 287(g)-Trained Officers Determine Alienage of any Person Suspected of Being an Illegal Alien?
The 287(g)-trained officers are focused on identifying and processing criminal aliens for removal, and investigating criminal immigration violations.
