Abstract:

Having an effective interior enforcement strategy is an essential complement to having an effective border strategy. To be sure, INSs tasks with regard to interior enforcement are considerable given the nature, scope, and magnitude of illegal activity. Nevertheless, in reviewing our work, we find that INS is an agency that faces significant challenges in appropriately staffing program areas, providing reliable information for program management, establishing clear and consistent guidance for working-level staff to do their jobs consistent with the goals of the program, promoting collaboration and coordination within INS and with other agencies, and developing outcome-based measures that would indicate progress toward the strategys objectives. Addressing these issues is important if INS is to achieve full program potential.
