PRACTITIONER ASSIGNMENT Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is a federal government agency created to enforce immigration laws. According to the agency’s website, ICE’s primary mission is to promote homeland security and public safety while enforcing laws pertaining to boarder control, customs, and immigration. The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act created in 1996 added section 287(g) that allows a partnership between ICE and local law enforcement. Under this partnership, ICE can enter into arrangements with state and local law enforcement to designate certain officers to implement immigration laws after proper training. In 2009, the Department of Homeland Security altered the program leaving state and local communities to carry out immigration enforcement. State and local governments have stepped up to address immigration issues but not without legal challenges and accusations of constitutional violations.
