Courthouse Immigration Enforcement Steps Courts Are Taking (December 29, 2021) [pdf]

TThis tool contains a list of steps state courts are taking regarding immigration enforcement at courthouses. Many of these steps are derived from and based upon the Department of Homeland Security policies that limit immigration enforcement actions that can be taken by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Patrol officials. It is important to note that with very few exceptions, courthouse enforcement is discouraged and limited and requires Headquarters level approval and regular reporting to Headquarters and the Office of the Secretary of DHS so that any actions taken are closely monitored.
