Joint DHS/DOD OIG Report on FBI, ICE Investigations into Terror Financing

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on August 15, 2007

Press release from Sen. Charles Grassley: “A new joint report from the Inspectors General at the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice finds that disputes between agents at the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have resulted in ICE agents reportedly choosing “to ignore” or “drop” leads and even entire cases that might have a connection to terrorist activity…The newly completed review is a follow-up report examining 10 other cases that started at ICE and were taken over by the FBI as part of an inter-agency agreement for better cooperation that was reached in 2003 by the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security. The review finds that 7 out of 10 terrorist financing cases suffered from lack of cooperation between the FBI and ICE until the cases were transferred to FBI-controlled Joint Terrorism Task Forces.”
