Immigration Enforcement Within the United States

Much of today's news focuses on immigration and immigration reform.

To help members of Congress better understand the immigration issue, the Library of Congress, Congressional Research Service (CRS), published an 82-page report entitled Immigration Enforcement Within the United States. The report is dated April 6, 2006.

The report has several sections:
  • Introduction (Policy issues and report overview)
  • What is immigration enforcement (Legal authority, interior versus border enforcement)
  • Types of immigration enforcement (Removal or deportation, detention, alien smuggling and trafficking, immigration fraud, worksite enforcement, enforcement at ports of entry, and enforcement between ports of entry
  • Enforcement of immigration laws and local law enforcement
  • Resource allocation
  • Department of Homeland Security organizational structure

The report is well-documented with footnotes and figures.
