The Department of Homeland Security 287(g) program “allows state and local law enforcement entities to enter into a partnership with ICE, under a joint Memorandum of Agreement, in order to receive delegated authority for immigration enforcement within their jurisdictions.” The Office of Professional Responsibility inspection was conducted March 24 – 27, 2014. The inspectors reviewed all aspects of the 287(g) program, to ensure compliance with all applicable standards and priorities dictated by Federal Immigration Law and Mandates to include interviewing personnel, detainees and sampling data entries for data quality.
