Trump is Prosecuting Fewer Immigrants for Immigration Crimes

Rate this Entry
No President in the history of our country prosecuted more immigrants than Obama.

Via Syracuse University's TRAC:

The latest available data from the U.S. Justice Department show that during FY 2017 the government reported 59,910 new immigration prosecutions. According to the case-by-case information analyzed by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University, this number is down 14 percent over the past fiscal year when the number of criminal prosecutions totaled 69,636.

    Barack Obama was president for almost the entire first four months of FY 2017, which began on October 1, 2016. This report, unless I am missing something, does not seem to have a month to month breakdown in these prosecutions.

    Therefore, based on the report, there is no way of knowing exactly how much of the decrease in prosecutions over previous years was due to prosecutions initiated under President Obama, and how much was due to prosecutions initiated after Donald Trump took office.

    If month to month prosecution statistics are available for that fiscal year, it might be useful to see them.
