ICE Fiscal Year 2007 Annual Report, Protecting National Security and Upholding Public Safety   [open pdf - 821KB]

"The following report includes a wide range of statistics, case reports and photos that, taken together, form the full picture of an agency driven by a commitment to protect the United States against those who would do harm to our people and our communities. […] U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), an agency of the Department of Homeland Security, protects national security and upholds public safety by targeting criminal networks and terrorist organizations that seek to exploit vulnerabilities in our immigration system, in our financial networks, along our border, at federal facilities and elsewhere in order to do harm to the United States. […] In FY07, ICE enacted a multi-year strategy of improving immigration enforcement through more efficient management, focused enforcement efforts that target the most dangerous illegal aliens, worksite enforcement initiatives that target employers who defy immigration law and reducing the pull of the 'jobs magnet' that draws illegal workers across the border in search of employment. At the same time, ICE stepped up the battle against financial crime and the exploitation of legitimate financial networks by criminal organizations using methods to earn, move and store illicit funding needed to support their criminal enterprises. Recognizing that partnerships are essential, ICE worked closely across agency boundaries with law enforcement colleagues at the local, state and federal level and across international boundaries to form a united front against criminal enterprises and terrorist organizations that threaten public safety and national security."
