  1. Use of ICE Detainers: Obama vs. Trump

    by , 09-21-2017 at 07:57 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.

  2. Federal Criminal Prosecutions Fall Under Trump

    by , 09-21-2017 at 07:26 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.
