287(g) of the Immi grati on and Naturali zati on Act (INA). The most important mi ssion of

County. I beli eve that a partnership with the Immi gration and Customs Enforcement
(I CE), allowing us to identify "criminal ill egal ali ens" who commit crimes in our
community, will further accompli sh thi s mi ssion.

program coordinator out of San Francisco, Ca liforni a. He has been very helpful and with
hi s advice we are propos ing the foll owing:
Train and assign thirty (30) Classifi cati on Deputies within the custodial
di vision of the Stani slaus County Sherifr s Department to collaterall y
perform immi gration related duti es within our custodial di vision. These
Classifi cati on Deputies will have more than a minimum of two (2) years
law enforcement work experi ence and will pass a securi ty background
acceptabl e to ICE.
Training faciliti es are ava il abl e at the Stani slaus County Sheri ffs Department where ICE

On behalf of the Stani slaus County Sheriff's Department, I would like to thank you for
meeti ng with us regardi ng the 287g program offered by ICE.
As discussed in our meeting, our agency would like to take a proact ive stance in
identifying and placing appropriate holds on criminal aliens in our County after hours and
on weekends. After discussing the 287g program at l e n g t h ~ we are in agreement that
adding an additional ICE agent in li eu oflhe 287g program will allow our County to
place more holds on criminal aliens.
We arc excited to have this partnership and appreciate the addit ion ofa second ICE agent
here in our County. I believe the added manpower along with the use of the ICE after
hours duty phone will hel p us to capture a majority of these ICE holds.
Again, thank you for your time and the service that you provide to Stanislaus County.
