Immigration and Customs Enforcement does not know how many noncitizen veterans it has deported in the last five years, a government watchdog found.
According to a Government Accountability Office report released June 6, ICE does not maintain a complete record of how many veterans were deported between 2013 and 2018.
The federal watchdog also found that ICE failed to follow its own policies with regard to veterans who may be subject to deportation.
“ICE has developed policies for handling cases of noncitizen veterans who may be subject to removal from the United States, but does not consistently adhere to those policies, and does not consistently identify and track such veterans,” the report states.
