ICE Interim Guidance: Civil Immigration Enforcement and Removal Priorities (Feb. 18, 2021)

ICE, Feb. 18, 2021

"This interim guidance is effective immediately. It applies to all U.S. Immigration and Customs
Enforcement (ICE) Directorates and Program Offices, and it covers enforcement actions, custody
decisions, the execution of final orders of removal, financial expenditures, and strategic
planning.

This interim guidance will remain in effect until Secretary Mayorkas issues new enforcement
guidelines. The Secretary has informed me that he will issue new guidelines only after
consultation with the leadership and workforce ofICE, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and
other Department of Homeland Security (Department) agencies and offices. He anticipates
issuing these guidelines in less than 90 days."
