Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Federal Criminal Prosecutions Fall Under Trump

Rate this Entry
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.
