Do the Department of Homeland Security’s policies concerning enforcement actions at or focused on sensitive locations remain in effect?

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) have each issued and implemented policies concerning enforcement actions at or focused on sensitive locations.  The ICE Sensitive Locations Policy and the CBP Sensitive Locations Policy (http://foiarr.cbp.gov/streamingWord.asp?i=1251) remain in effect, and these FAQs are intended to clarify what types of locations are covered by those policies.  ICE and CBP conduct their enforcement actions consistent with the Department of Homeland Security’s November 2014 memorandum, which prioritizes the removal of national security, border security, and public safety threats.
