Rockwall First Texas County to Receive ICE Certificate as ‘IMAGE’ Member

Special Agent in Charge Katrina W. Berger of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) on Monday presented a certificate to Rockwall County to become the first Texas county to become an “IMAGE” member.

IMAGE stands for ICE Mutual Agreement between Government and Employers. The IMAGE program was established in July 2006 to combat unlawful employment, and reduce vulnerabilities that allow illegal aliens to gain such employment. This voluntary program assists employers to develop a more secure and stable workforce. It also enhances fraudulent document awareness through education and training.

Rockwall County is the first and only county government in Texas to sign an IMAGE Agreement, and is now an IMAGE-Certified Member.

“Becoming an IMAGE partner and member is a responsible decision for any organization,” said Berger. “I’m gratified that Rockwall County chose to ensure that it has a lawful workforce by joining our IMAGE team. Rockwall County has become a positive role model for all other Texas governments, private companies, and all other employers.”
