ICE Wants to Be an Intelligence Agency Under Trump

Officials at Immigration and Customs Enforcement are actively exploring joining the U.S. Intelligence Community, The Daily Beast has learned.

The effort is helmed by a small cohort of career Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials, and has been underway since the Obama administration, according to an ICE official familiar with the matter.

Internal advocates for joining the America’s spy agencies—known as the Intelligence Community or the IC—focus on the potential benefits to the agency’s work on counterproliferation, money laundering, counterterror, and cybercrime. The official added that joining the IC could also be useful for the agency’s immigration enforcement work––in particular, their efforts to find and arrest undocumented immigrants with criminal arrest warrants (known in ICE as fugitive aliens).

But civil liberties advocates and government watchdog groups—as well as some current and former U.S. officials—are concerned at the prospect of the nation’s immigration enforcers joining the ranks of America’s spies.

1. What are the intelligence requirements to work for ICE.

Are they the best and the brightest ? I think the managers could be part of the intelligence community, but the rank and file may not all be fit for the title. A person walking a dog around a car checking for contraband should not know or highest secrets.

3. I think if you fail the prison guard test they send you to ICE.

2. counterproliferation, because so many immigrants bring nukes into the country with them.
