GAO REPORT QUESTIONS EFFECTIVENESS OF 287(G) PROGRAM

Rating: 3 votes, 5.00 average.

287(g) is the section of the 1996 Immigration Act that allows local police forces to become deputized to work with ICE in immigration enforcement matters and it is one of the most heavily criticized enforcement tools used by DHS. This passage from the New York Times story on a new government report pretty much says it all:

But the report said immigration bureau officials had not closely
supervised how their agreements with the local agencies had been
carried out, had inconsistently described the program's goals and had
failed to spell out what data should be tracked, collected and reported.

A spokesman for the Homeland Security Department, to which the immigration agency referred calls, did not respond to telephone and e-mail messages.


Secretary Napolitano says that the 287(g) program is now under review by her department.
