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

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
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)
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
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
