    ICE Shortage of Detention Space - Name Confirmed
    Posted Jul 16, 2004

    The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) currently is exceeding their budgeted capacity for detention space of foreign-national detainees, according to information released in early July 2004 by GovExec.com. As a result, Victor Cerda, Acting Director of Detention and Removals for ICE, issued a memo on June 10, 2004 addressing the need for discretion with respect to detention of foreign nationals. The Memo advised regional detention officials to consider financial constraints when deciding whether to detain foreign nationals in non-mandatory situations. Further, in certain areas of the country, some in detention have been released on bond or into detention alternative programs such as the one highlighted in our June 25, 2004 MurthyBulletin article, ICE Starts Pilot Program As Detention Alternative, available on MurthyDotCom.

    Due to the scarcity of detention space, those in Investigations are directed under a June 24, 2004 memo from Marcy Forman, Acting Director of ICE Investigations, to promptly advise detention officials as to how much space they will need for detainees when conducting an operation. As investigators continue to arrest foreign nationals and detention space remains at a premium, it is likely that the detention alternative programs, if successful, will play a large role in ICE's plans.

    Detention is not the only issue at ICE. For several months, ICE has been attempting to change its name to the U.S. Investigations and Criminal Enforcement. While this change was favored within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), efforts to change the name have ended after the proposed name change was sent to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and other interested government agencies had the opportunity to comment. ICE has decided to remain the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and will finally replace the Legacy INS badges its agents carry with new ICE badges by the end of this fiscal year.
