287(g) Program

"The 287(g) program...allows a state or local law enforcement entity to enter into a partnership with ICE, under a joint Memorandum of Agreement (MOA), in order to receive delegated authority for immigration enforcement within their jurisdictions."

- United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement

"287(g) helps rid their communities of illegal aliens who commit other major and minor crimes, which saves on criminal justice costs, not to mention social services, education and health care costs, and improves the quality of life for all. . ."
