Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

description

  1. ICE arrests over 450 during Operation Safe City

    by , 09-28-2017 at 01:48 PM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Via Immigration and Customs Enforcement:

    WASHINGTON – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Fugitive Operations teams arrested 498 individuals from 42 countries for federal immigration violations in multiple cities across the U.S. during a four-day operation that ended Wednesday. Operation ‘Safe City’ focused on cities and regions where ICE deportation officers are denied access to jails and prisons to interview suspected immigration violators or jurisdictions where ICE detainers are not honored.

    The operation targeted individuals who have violated U.S. immigration laws, prioritizing aliens with criminal convictions, pending criminal charges, known gang members and affiliates, immigration fugitives and those who re-entered the U.S. after deportation. Individuals with active DACA were not targeted for arrest.

  2. Use of ICE Detainers: Obama vs. Trump

    by , 09-21-2017 at 08:57 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Via Syracuse University's TRAC:

    The latest case-by-case Immigration and Customs Enforcement data reveal that its use of detainers, commonly called immigration holds, began to increase last year well before either the election or inauguration of Donald Trump. Once President Trump assumed office, detainer usage rose rapidly. By March 2017, the second full month of the Trump Administration, ICE recorded preparing 13,971 detainers - up 31.7 percent from January's level.

    Against a longer time frame, the number of detainers issued in March of 2017 is still slightly lower than during March of 2014. It is also only half the level of six years ago (March 2011) when ICE detainer usage peaked. See Figure 1.

  3. Federal Criminal Prosecutions Fall Under Trump

    by , 09-21-2017 at 08:26 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Isn't it ironic... don't ya think?

    The top two charges are immigration crimes: 08 USC § 1326 - Reentry of deported alien, and 08 USC § 1325 - Entry of alien at improper time or place; etc.

    Via Syracuse University's TRAC:

    Despite tough talk on cracking down on crime from the President and from Attorney General Sessions, actual criminal prosecutions and convictions secured by federal prosecutors have dropped. The latest available data from the Justice Department show that during the first ten months of FY 2017 the government reported 86,537 new criminal convictions. If this activity continues at the same pace, the annual total of convictions will be 103,844 for this fiscal year.

    According to the case-by-case government records analyzed by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University, this estimate is down 12.3 percent over the past fiscal year when the number of convictions totaled 118,384. Compared to five years ago when there were 151,129 criminal convictions, the estimate of FY 2017 convictions is down 31.3 percent. And new filings of federal criminal prosecutions are similarly down.

  5. ICE removes top Mexican drug trafficker

    by , 09-12-2017 at 02:24 PM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Via Immigration and Customs Enforcement:

    NEW YORK – Deportation officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) removed a top Mexican drug kingpin Sept. 1.

    Esteban Rodriguez-Olivera, 52, departed from John F. Kennedy Airport in New York and arrived in Mexico without incident.
    He was transferred to ERO New York custody Aug. 28 from the Federal Bureau of Prisons Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn where he was serving a sentence for a felony cocaine conviction.

    Rodriguez-Olivera, one of the leaders of the “Los Gueros” international drug organization, pleaded guilty in November 2012 to charges of conspiring to import illegal narcotics into the United States.

    He was sentenced Aug. 24 to 60 months incarceration, and credited for time served, by the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York.

    According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York, the Los Gueros drug cartel is estimated to have imported more than 100,000 kilograms of cocaine into the United States from 1996 to 2008. It smuggled cocaine from Colombia to the Gulf of Mexico. From there, it routed the cocaine through Mexico to Texas before delivering it to various parts of the United States, including New York.

    Rodriguez-Olivera and his brother Luis Rodriguez-Olivera were both designated as ‘kingpins’ in 2007 by the U.S. Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force.
