    Live Webcast on 287(g)

    Law Enforcement Group Moderated by CIS Analyst

    WASHINGTON (July 24, 2009) - The Center for Immigration Studiess and the Law Enforcement and Public Safety Channel are hosting a live webcast on the 287(g) program on Tuesday, July 28, at 4 p.m. The webcast, moderated by CIS Director of Policy Studies Jessica Vaughan, will feature representatives of three local law enforcement agencies that have successful 287(g) programs in place: Harris County, Texas; Collier County, Fla.; and Whitfield County, Ga.

    This is a rare opportunity for those interested in the 287(g) program to hear directly from those law enforcement professionals who use it. The 287(g) program was created by Congress on behalf of local communities that have problems with illegal immigration and crime. It enables local law enforcement agencies to provide direct assistance to ICE in deporting20foreign nationals who commit crimes in their jurisdictions. The panelists will describe how it has helped them make their communities safer and save scarce public funds for law enforcement and correctional costs.

    Viewers can register for the program and view it live on July 28 at 4 p.m., or view a re-run anytime between August 3 and August 30, 2009. In addition, the Center will have the program available permanently at its web site,
