ICE 287(g) Applications, Denials, & Requests for Information
Below are links to a variety of primary-source documents related to the 287(g) program of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE),through which state and local law enforcement officers are "deputized" to enforce federal immigration law (see ICE's most recentFact Sheet for more background). These documents were obtained through a request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) (original request letterhere, and ICE's response letterhere).
All records from jurisdictions that have expressed an interest in the ICE 287(g) program are listed below with links to the documents obtainedthrough the FOIA request. Note that not all of these jurisdictions actually
to the program; some merely sought more information. Thedocuments are arranged alphabetically by state, then by the political subdivision thereof. The "Request" column reflects what the specificrequest (if any) of the relevant law enforcement agency; the "Disposition" column reflects the outcome, if known, of each jurisdiction'sapplication or request for information, while the next column ("Disposition Date") reflects the date of that outcome (unfortunately, many aremarked "unclear" because of ICE's apparent habit of not date-stamping all of its correspondence). Finally, the "Notes" column reflectsanything particularly noteworthy about the documents.
