From the Document: "The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is the principal criminal investigative agency within U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). ICE is responsible for enforcing U.S. immigration law by identifying, arresting, detaining, and removing illegal aliens from the U.S. ICE has over 20,000 employees deployed across all 50 States, the District of Columbia, and 50 foreign countries. For FY 2019, ICE requests $8.6B in total budget authority. This represents an increase of $626.1M over the FY 2018 President's Budget. The FY 2019 President's Budget continues the funding policies as set forth in the FY 2018 President's Budget and fully supports the priorities of the Secretary. This includes an increase of over 3,000 new positions to support 20 percent of the 10,000 Law Enforcement Officers (LEOs) and commensurate support staff mandated in Executive Order (EO) 13768 Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States. The FY 2019 President's Budget also provides the necessary mission support, facilities, infrastructure and technology to enforce our Nation's customs and immigration laws."
