Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Study: In New York City Most Dangerous Criminals Less Likely to be Deported than Low Level Offenders

Rate this Entry

Justice Strategies, a prisoner advocacy group based in New York, has analyzed statistics that show that in New York City the Obama administration is not targeting the most dangerous criminals for deportation, as they have claimed.


The study concludes that noncitizen prisoners that have been accused of misdemeanors are identified for deportation more often than individuals charged with felonies. Moreover, individuals that have been charged with lower-level felonies were identified for deportation more often than those charged with more serious crimes.


The report's findings include:



  • In New York City there is no correlation between ICE detainer issuance and the severity of a criminal charge.

  • Over half of ICE detainers are issued within one day, indicating that the screening process is not investigative.

  • Controlling for race and offense level, noncitizens with a drug-related top charge and an ICE detainer spend 73 days longer in jail before being discharged, on average, than those without an ICE detainer.

  • Noncitizens with an ICE detainer are effectively barred from pre-trial release on bail, no matter the offense level.
