Protesters outside of the ICE complex in Williston in June. The agency operates a tip call center out of the facility that gets calls from all over the country.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement has roots here in Vermont, with a tip call center for suspected undocumented people located near a shopping center complex in Williston. VTDigger reporter Elizabeth Hewitt recently wrote about this ICE center in Chittenden County.

"It's been located there since 2003, and there's a couple different functions of ICE that are located in Williston and also around the state," explained Hewitt. "In this particular story, I was really focusing on this tip line that is this sort of hotline for the entire country."
