Today, it is used as a means of governing immigration matters throughout the United States.
DHS – DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY
The Department of Homeland Security is responsible for the enforcement and administration of immigration matters, particularly as they apply to cases which involve the potential threat of terrorism or criminal behaviors.
USCIS is part of the Department of Homeland Security and it is its administrative office.
Immigration Customs Enforcement is a branch of the U.S. Homeland Security Department. Immigrants who have been criminally accused can be detained by ICE and could be in jeopardy of deportation.
