U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is the largest investigative arm of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), charged with preventing terrorist and criminal activity by targeting the people, money, and materials that support terrorist and criminal organizations. ICE is responsible for investigating a wide range of domestic and international activities arising from the illegal movement of people, goods and contraband into, within, and out of the United States.
ICE investigations cover a broad range of areas, including national security threats, financial and smuggling violations (including illegal arms exports), financial crimes, commercial fraud, human trafficking, narcotics smuggling, child pornography/exploitation, and immigration fraud. ICE is also responsible for enforcing orders of removal from the United States involving illegal aliens, fugitive aliens and criminal aliens.
