Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Enforcement Overdrive: A Comprehensive Assessment of ICE’s "Criminal Alien Program"

For Immediate Release

November 2, 2015

Washington D.C. - Today, The American Immigration Council releases Enforcement Overdrive: A Comprehensive Assessment of ICE’s "Criminal Alien Program" by Guillermo Cantor, Ph.D., Mark Noferi, Esq., and Daniel Martinez, Ph.D.

The Criminal Alien Program (CAP) is a massive enforcement program administered by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and has become the primary channel through which interior immigration enforcement takes place. Between two-thirds and three-quarters of individuals removed from the interior of the United States are removed through CAP. Each year, Congress allocates hundreds of millions of dollars to fund this program. Until now, however, little has been known about how CAP works, whom CAP deports, and whether CAP has been effective in meeting its goals.


Based on government data and documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), this report examines CAP’s evolution, operations, and outcomes between fiscal years 2010 and 2013 and finds the program removed mainly people with no criminal convictions, and people who have not been convicted of violent crimes or crimes the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) classifies as serious. CAP also has resulted in several anomalies, including that it appears biased against Mexican and Central American nationals. Moreover, the number of CAP removals differs significantly from state to state.
