Georgia, as well as North Carolina and South Carolina which are also part of ICE’s Atlanta regions has great cooperation with local law enforcement agencies. Local sheriffs notify ICE about undocumented immigrants in their custody under a federal program known as 287(g). Out of the four counties in Georgia participating in the program, Gwinnett County is the “most productive” 287(g) county in the country states NPR.
