Identify and Arrest

ERO uses law enforcement and intelligence-driven leads to identify noncitizens who may present a threat to national security or public safety, or otherwise undermine the integrity of U.S. immigration laws. Upon identification and a thorough investigation, ICE officers then arrest noncitizens by conducting targeted enforcement actions.
