State and local police officers who enforce federal immigration laws are not adequately screened, trained or supervised, and the civil rights of the immigrants they deal with are not consistently protected, according to a report released Friday by the Department of Homeland Security inspector general, reports the New York Times.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) delegates federal immigration enforcement authorities to state and local law enforcement agencies through its authority under section 287(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

This report examines the performance of 287(g) agreements with state and local authorities. ICE permits designated officers to perform certain immigration enforcement functions.

This report observed instances in which ICE and participating law enforcement agencies were not operating in compliance with the terms of the agreements.

It also noted several areas in which ICE had not instituted controls to promote effective program operations and address related risks. Includes recommendations. Illustrations.
