Assistant Secretary Myers:

As the Inspector General for the Texas Department Criminal Justice. I am requesting 287(g)
authority for our which not only supports the Department of Criminal Justice, but
is involved in Federal Bureau Investigations Fugitive Task Operations, U.S. Drug
Enforcement Task Forces Operations, and U Marshal Task Force Operations in the major cities
within Texas. their duties involve gang investigations and the arrest of violent fugitives
this training would be a benefit to both our agencies. OIG wowd benefit in that it would be an
additional tool in combating the criminal element that is frequently encountered in the daily job of a
task investigator. OIG unit investigators are assigned throughout the state at major
units and would be able to process offenders identified as being illegal aliens after the initial
processing phase into prison This training would a benefit to the enforcement of
Immigration and Customs as OIG task force members frequently encounter situations where
potential illegal aliens are involved in criminal activity. This program would provide the OIG task
force member the ability to arrest and process any illegal at the scene, regardless of whether
they were directly involved with illegal activity.
