U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which is responsible for enforcing U.S. immigration and customs laws, is the largest investigative agency in the Department of Homeland Security. ICE employs over 20,000 workers, and, as of 2017, plans to hire between 10,000–15,000 new agents.
ICE has more than 400 offices in the U.S. and around the world.
Two of the major sectors within the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement are Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).
ERO enforces the nation’s immigration laws in a fair and effective manner. It identifies and apprehends removable aliens, detaining those individuals when necessary and removing them from the United States. Learn more about the ERO Immigration Enforcement Agent Test.
The HSI is responsible for investigating a wide range of domestic and international activities arising from the illegal movement of people and goods into, within, and out of the United States. Learn more about the HSI Special Agent Test.
