DEA/ICE Announce Alliance

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Drug Enforcement Administration today entered into a new inter agency agreement to increase the number of agents targeting international drug traffickers, improve and enhance information and intelligence sharing, and promote effective coordination between the agencies.

DEA Acting Administrator Michele M. Leonhart and ICE Assistant Secretary John Morton today signed the agreement describing the new measures both agencies will implement.

The agreement allows ICE agents to investigate narcotics violations both in the United States and overseas in coordination with the DEA.

The agreement takes immediate effect.
