Carrollton and Farmers Branch are among the first Texas law enforcement agencies accepted into a program to give local officers federal immigration enforcement training, according to a press release Friday from U.S. Rep. Kenny Marchant.

Harris County, where Houston is located, has also been accepted into the 287(g) program this week, according to the Coppell Republican’s office. Officers and deputies from the three agencies will receive training allowing them to investigate whether a person is in the country illegally and give them to access to federal immigration databases.
