charged with immigration enforcement

Hi everyone

The following paragraph is from The Economist September 9th 2017. The title of the article is "Let them stay". Page 9.

There is a good chance that Congress will return them(immigrants) to their prior limbo, or worse. Recipients of DACA were obliged to give their addresses to the federal government, which is charged with immigration enforcement, making it considerably easier to round them(immigrants) up now.

I know the phrase charge with means accuse of. If that's the case, a title of crime should be followed by the phrase. But I think immigration enforcement is an organization(I'm not sure.) rather than a crime. I have a hard time understanding this. Can anyone help? Thank you.
