Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Only 14% of ICE Detainers Target Serious Criminals

Rate this Entry
Here is the latest report from Syracuse University's TRAC immigration: Few ICE Detainers Target Serious Criminals.

From the report:

"Very timely case-by-case data from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) show that no more than 14 percent of the "detainers" issued by the government in FY 2012 and the first four months of FY 2013 met the agency's stated goal of targeting individuals who pose a serious threat to public safety or national security. In fact, roughly half of the 347,691 individuals subject to an ICE detainer (47.7 percent) had no record of a criminal conviction, not even a minor traffic violation."

TRAC also points out that if you exclude traffic violations (including DWI) and marijuana possession that two thirds of all ICE detainers do not include individuals with any criminal record.

They also discovered that ICE categorizes minor crimes as serious threats to public safety, determining that minor violations may result in an individual's designation in the highest threat level category.
