The President has challenged cabinet Secretaries and senior Federal agency heads to create a government that is more citizen centered, results oriented, and market based. To achieve this vision within The Department of Homeland Security, we are searching for high caliber leaders who possess high standards of excellence and enjoy challenges and opportunities.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is the largest investigative arm of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). ICE protects national security and upholds public safety by targeting criminal networks and terrorist organizations that seek to exploit vulnerabilities in the immigration system, in the financial networks, along the U.S. borders, and elsewhere. The Office of Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) enforces the nation's immigration laws by identifying, arresting, and removing aliens from the United States who present a danger to national security or are a risk to public safety, as well as those who enter the United States illegally or otherwise undermine the integrity of our immigration laws and our border control efforts.
The working title of this position is Field Office Director (FOD) and the position is organizationally aligned within the Office of Enforcement and Removal Operations. The incumbent of this position plans, directs, manages, and coordinates operational functions relating to the apprehension, transportation, and detention of aliens ordered removed; is responsible for the execution of final orders of deportation; and acts as a liaison between Departmental, interagency, and community partners on ERO matters.
The Field Office Director has overall responsibility, as well as delegated authority, for the oversight and administration of ERO program operations throughout the Field Office area of responsibility (AOR). The FOD Ensures that Field Office resources and expertise are being effectively deployed to locate and arrest fugitive aliens, detain certain aliens while their cases are being processed, and remove aliens from the United States when so ordered.
