ABSTRACT

ICE Initiatives to Combat Southwest Border Violence   [open pdf - 43KB]

"As the agency with the broadest law enforcement authority in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is uniquely positioned to combat vulnerabilities and threats to America that arise from the nation's borders. ICE has established aggressive intelligence and investigative operations at the nation's ports of entries, between the ports and in the nation's interior. The southern border of the United States is a region particularly vulnerable to crossborder criminal enterprises and the violence associated with them. In recent years, ICE has seen an unprecedented surge in brutality by drug and human smuggling & trafficking organizations along the Southwest border."
