Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Trump's Deportations Lower than 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2009 under Obama

Rate this Entry
Via NPR's Latino USA:

With five months remaining in 2017, how does Trump administration compare to the Obama administration?

Early indications would suggest that even though there is a marked increase between the 2017 data and data from the last few years under the Obama administration, the Trump numbers are lower than 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2009 under Obama.

The following table from EOIR’s annual 2016 report includes information that can help with a comparison. It lists the total number of removal orders and voluntary departures for the past five fiscal years and begins to offer some insight into how the new Trump numbers stack up to the Obama years.


One way to compare is to calculate a monthly average across each year. For example, in FY 2012, there was a monthly average of 10,419 total removal decisions, 8,323 non-voluntary removal decisions and 2,096 voluntary departure decisions. When the 2017 DOJ data from the release is used to compare Trump in 2017 to Obama in 2012, the monthly average for 2017 (so far) under Trump would be 9,512 total removal decisions, 8,331 non-voluntary removal decisions and 1,181 voluntary departure decisions. In other words, the current Trump monthly averages in 2017 are on par with Obama monthly averages for 2012. In addition, the monthly averages for 2012 Obama total removal numbers were greater than the total 2017 monthly averages for Trump.


In addition, if you take EOIR data from 2009-2011, the monthly averages for Obama were actually higher in all categories than the 2017 Trump numbers from the DOJ.

    The removal figures are misleading. Obama padded the figures by counting aliens caught at the border after making an entry without inspection. Removal of aliens from the interior went down during his administration.

    I am not suggesting that your comments are misleading, Matthew. They aren't. We are being mislead by the way the Obama administration collected and reported enforcement statistics.
