ABSTRACT

Statement of John Morton, Assistant Secretary, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Department of Homeland Security, Regarding A Hearing on 'U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement FY 2012 Budget Request' Before the U.S. House of Representatives, Committee on Appropriations, Subcommittee on Homeland Security   [open pdf - 123KB]

"I would like to begin by expressing my thanks for this Committee's strong support for ICE [U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement]. From FY 2004 to FY 2010, the demands on ICE's law enforcement personnel have increased and our appropriated budget grew to support them. During this time, we have increased our average daily detention population by 40 percent and increased our annual criminal arrests by 1,200. The President's FY 2012 budget request strengthens key law enforcement programs while ensuring that ICE operates with maximum efficiency, supporting ICE's two core operational programs: Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), focused on civil immigration enforcement, and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), focused on complex criminal investigations."
