This bill would convene a commission of experts to provide Congress with a roadmap for abolishing the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency and transferring its functions to other relevant agencies within one year of this bill’s enactment. The commission would develop a new immigration enforcement regime that complies with international human rights laws and the U.S. Constitution. It’d provide recommendations for transferring ICE’s duties related to financial crimes, cybercrimes, trade fraud, human trafficking, and drug smuggling to other agencies. Congress would then consider those recommendations prior to the termination of ICE.
The commission would total 17 members, including 9 individuals from civil society and immigrant rights organizations; and two individuals appointed by each of the Speaker of the House, the House Minority Leader, the Senate Majority Leader, and the Senate Minority Leader.
