    Should undocumented aliens be worried about deportation? Yes, but how worried should they be?

    In FY 2013, ICE conducted a total of 368,644removals. The overwhelmingmajority of ICE's non-criminal removals in FY 2013 were individuals encounteredby CBP while trying to unlawfully enter the United States. Eighty-five percent (128,398) of ICE's151,834 non-criminal removals were individuals attempting to unlawfully enterthe United States. Overall, 93 percent of all ICE's non-criminal removals were of recentborder crossers, repeat immigration violators, or fugitives from theimmigration courts. https://www.ice.gov/removal-statistics/ That means that 10,628noncriminal, undocumented aliens who were living in the United States weredeported in FY 2013.

    Certainly, 10,628 is a large number in an absolute sense, but most estimates Ihave seen put the number of undocumented aliens in 2013 at around 11.7million. That means the odds onbeing arrested and deported that year if you were a noncriminal alien living inthe United States was roughly .09 percent. Substitute your own figure for the number of undocumentedaliens and do the arithmetic yourself if you want a more accurate percentage.
