ICE will give a course on the work of immigration authorities: how to enroll
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Unit (ERO) is offering the first ERO program at Citizens Academy in Chicago, Illinois, scheduled to begin September 15th. This is reported on ICE official website.
The aim of the program is to familiarize participants with how and why ICE fulfills its mission. Modeled after other law enforcement academies, including the ICE Institute of Homeland Security, the FBI, the US Customs and Border Protection and local police departments, the ERO program plans to directly engage and educate the public through the academy.
“The academy is a natural step forward from the outreach work we have already done with our community,” said Robert Guadian, ERO Field Office Director in Chicago. "This is an opportunity for the community to get to know our people, understand our mission, and see, first and foremost, how the agency is enforcing federal immigration laws passed by Congress."
During an interactive program, held once a week for six weeks, participants will communicate directly with ERO staff and learn about ICE policies and procedures. The Civic Academy also provides ICE with an opportunity to hear from participants, understand their perspectives and debunk myths.
The curriculum will include classroom instruction, visiting an immigration detention center, learning more about the health care ICE provides to those in its care, and exploring ICE's role in promoting dignity, respect and due process in a immigration from start to finish.
