ERO Enforcement

The broad authority of ICE allows for the identification and removal of dangerous, often recidivist, criminals engaged in crimes such as murder, predatory sexual offenses, narcotics trafficking, alien smuggling, and a host of other crimes that have a profoundly negative impact on our society. The Enforcement Division manages the enforcement initiatives and components through which ERO identifies and arrests removable aliens.

ERO's Enforcement Division comprises the following:

  • Criminal Alien Program (CAP): provides ICE-wide direction and support in the biometric and biographic identification, arrest, and removal of priority aliens who are incarcerated within federal, state, and local prisons and jails, as well as at-large criminal aliens that have circumvented identification.
  • National Fugitive Operations Program (NFOP): established to dramatically expand the agency's efforts to locate, arrest, or otherwise reduce the fugitive alien population in the United States. In 2009, NFOP responsibilities expanded to include the identification, location, and arrest of at-large criminal and previously removed aliens.
