This report focuses on interior immigration enforcement during the Trump administration and in particular the activities of ICE, the DHS agency responsible for interior enforcement. Over the course of six months, Migration Policy Institute (MPI) researchers visited 15 jurisdictions in seven states, both in locations fully cooperative with ICE and those limiting their involvement, to assess the differences in enforcement and resulting impacts.
