Finding of No Significant Impact: For Improvements at the Port Isabel Service Processing Center, Port Isabel, Texas [open pdf - 270KB]
From the Background: "United States (U.S.) Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the second largest investigative agency in the Federal government. ICE's primary mission is to promote homeland security and public safety through criminal and civil enforcement of Federal laws governing border control, customs, trade, and immigration. To ensure ICE's primary mission is achieved, ICE proposes to implement facility improvement projects at its Port Isabel Service Processing Center (SPC). The projects would ensure that adequate facilities and infrastructure resources are available for the efficient and lawful operation of the Port Isabel SPC. This effort is critical to the effective and efficient operations associated with detention and removal in and around ICE's San Antonio Field Office Area of Operations (AO). In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S. Code 4321-4347), ICE has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) of its action to implement a variety of improvements related to modernization of the existing Port Isabel Service Processing Center (SPC)."
