ICE Day 2017

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) enforces federal laws governing border control, customs, trade and immigration to promote homeland security and public safety. ICE was created in 2003 through a merger of the investigative and interior enforcement elements of the former U.S. Customs Service and the Immigration and Naturalization Service. GTSC hosted its ICE Day 2017 to discuss the mission and challenges facing ICE and ways industry can partner to help meet those challenges.
