This report begins by defining the criminal alien population and quantifying a portion of it with the limited publically available data. Next it presents the most recent ICE enforcement priorities that emerged with the introduction of PEP in November 2014. The report then describes the major ICE immigration enforcement programs that target criminal aliens. The final section discusses selected policy considerations for programs targeting criminal aliens. This includes a discussion of current levels of enforcement and program appropriations, as well as state and local involvement in immigration enforcement. Bills: H.R. 6947, H.R. 2764, H.R. 2017
