How does an average day in Immigration Customs look like?

#immigration #law #research #lawyer #law-school

Thank you comment icon There would be the routine work of checking people's identity and papers as to entering the country but you would also be exposed to the tragedy of others who are crossing the border illegally and are at the mercy of criminals the demand payment to get them into this country. On the flip side, you would also see wonderful people, many of whom are misunderstood, who are only trying to make life better for themselves. I hope that helps. Tom Moyer

Kirstin’s Answer

According to Employees at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) play a critical role in fulfilling the mission of our organization - to protect America and uphold public safety by targeting the people, money and materials that support terrorist and criminal activities.

The orientation process assists new employees in becoming a productive member of the ICE family. Through orientation, training and other programs, you will meet new coworkers, supervisors and managers who are able to assist with new employment responsibilities. Direct any questions to your supervisor or contact person from the human resource department.

In this online New Employees Orientation, you will find information regarding working for ICE and various forms to complete prior to orientation.
