Release Date: July 11, 2019

En español | Other translations

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued the following statement on safety and enforcement during Tropical Storm Barry:

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are concerned about the potential impact of Tropical Storm Barry to portions of the Gulf Coast, where Louisiana and Texas are under states of emergency. Our highest priority remains the preservation of life and safety. In consideration of these circumstances, there will be no immigration enforcement initiatives associated with evacuations or sheltering related to the storm, except in the event of a serious public safety threat.
