"This report was compiled in response to legislative language in Senate Report 114-68, which accompanies the Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Appropriations Act (P.L. 114-113). Senate Report 114-68 states: The Committee remains concerned about increasing gang violence and criminal activity in many parts of our Nation and directs ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] to continually track gang membership amongst fugitives, as well as the detained and non-detained populations. The Committee directs ICE, not later than 180 days after the date of enactment of this act, to submit a report to the Committee regarding the detention and removal of gang members. This report should include: (1) a State by State breakdown of the number of gang members detained, removed, or both detained and removed; and (2) the number of gang members detained, removed, or both detained and removed in the 10 largest metropolitan areas in the United States. The Committee will continue directing ICE to produce this report until data systems and procedures are capable of readily providing gang related information and other key attributes of aliens to Congress upon request."
