Inspector General: Immigration Agencies Need One Approach

November 01, 2017

The Office of Inspector General report is only about 20 pages but it offers a blistering critique of three different Homeland Security agencies: Customs and Border Protection, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and Citizenship and Immigration Services.

It’s worth reading some of the report verbatim: "We identified issues related to mission allocation, and expenditure comparisons, the affirmative asylum application process and the Department’s struggle to understand immigration outcomes and decisions."

The OIG found issues with bed space, how immigrants are processed in detention and lack of adequate language services.

The agency recommended that Homeland Security create one department to oversee immigration enforcement for all the different agencies.
