The integrity of the immigration mission requires balancing intelligence-driven investigations and enforcement with enhanced delivery of benefits and services to support our nation’s evolving immigration policies and needs.
Immigration policy is rapidly evolving. While there are many perspectives on whether the current policies are right, there is a critical need to build new organizational capabilities and processes supported by new technology. In the face of a large volume of potential applicants, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) needs to quickly scale to address this. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) must also evolve their processes and systems to support the new policy.
In addition to new immigration policies, ICE is also facing new threats. Human trafficking, cultural artifact theft, cybersecurity, and intellectual property are just a few of the emerging areas that require analytics and trend analysis so that ICE can best position limited resources to combat these threats.

Arc Aspicio currently works on large programs delivering mission-focused applications and technology infrastructure solutions to agencies focused on immigration.
At ICE, we have used agile development to build solutions to support Enforcement and Removal Operations, supported School Certification on the Student Exchange and Visitor Program (SEVP), and supported Homeland Security Investigation in their efforts to combat human trafficking.
For the Human Smuggling and Trafficking Center, we led a project to collect, extract, cleanse, assess, and analyze immigration and enforcement data collected from more than 20 Federal agencies. This research and data analytics project identified trends to help Federal agencies better understand the scope of human trafficking across the country and allocate resources.
Arc Aspicio has also supported information sharing and collaborations with international partners on the U.S. Visitor and Immigration Status Indicator Technology (US-VISIT) program for the National Protection and Programs Directorate, now called the Office of Biometric Identification (OBIM).
