Dear Under Secretary Clark:

I am w riting to request participation in the Delegation of Authority Program pursuant to


287(g) of the Immigration and Naturalization Act. Given Framingham's past relationship
with ICE and our growing immigrant population, th is partnership will allow the Police
Department to better serve the Framingnam community and meet the needs of our
immigrant residents. Framingham presently is home to a large and growing Brazilian
population wbo has established a flourishing commerce center in Downtown.

I have been in communication with your office in Boston. (b)(6 ), (b)(7)(C) Special Agent
in Charge has been very helpful and encouraging. Based on conversations with him I am
requesting two (2) investigators ii'om our Investigation Division, who speak Portuguese
and pass security backgrounds acceptable by ICE attend and successfully complete the
287 (g) training program. These officers will be assigned part-ti me to the ICE Task Force
to assist in conducting regional investigations as requested by (l!)J6) (l!l.(Il(~l. The officers,
whose assignments will include general duty, narcotic, gang and street crimes
investigations will be assigned to crimes where the suspects and victims are from our
immigrant population.

This program will allow us to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding that will
enable us to participate with ICE in identifying criminal illegal aliens who pose risk to
the entire Framingham Community, to inc lude im migrant victims. 1 look forward to your
endorsement of this request and moving forward in our pmtnership.

Sincerely,

(b)(6), (b)(7)(C)

Special Agent in r.h~rp'",

I am writing to notify you that the Framingham Police Department respectfully


requests to withdraw, at this time, from the 287(g) program. The Department is no longer
able to participate due to divergent goals and philosophies between the Department's
community policing objectives and the 287(g) program. However, our withdrawal should
not be construed as any reflection on your agency, the professionalism of your personnel,
or the outstanding work that you do. Furthem10re, the Framingham Police Department
remains firmly committed to working closely with its law enforcement partners, at all
levels, in service to the public. Please contact me if you have any questions.
