Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Criminal Prosecutions Referred by DHS Continue to Fall under Trump

Via Syracuse University's TRAC:

The latest available data from the Justice Department show that during April 2017 the government reported 4,434 new criminal prosecutions as a result of referrals by the immigration and customs components in the Department of Homeland Security. According to the case-by-case information analyzed by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), this number is down 17.5 percent over the previous month and down 42.9 percent from a year ago in April 2016. See Table 1.



Table 1. Criminal Prosecutions Referred by
Immigration and Customs Components of DHS
Number April 2017 4,434
Percent Change from previous month -17.5
Percent Change from April 2016 -42.9
Number December 2012 (peak) 10,708
Percent Change from Peak -58.6

The number of prosecutions include those referred by Customs and Border Protection, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, and joint task forces of DHS with state and local authorities. The long term trends, along with the month-to-month variation driven largely by seasonality in apprehensions along the southwest border, is shown more clearly in Figure 1.

Since the latest data track prosecutions through April 2017 they do not as yet reflect the impact of the new priorities Attorney General Jeff Sessions promulgated in his April 11, 2017 memorandum to federal prosecutors calling for stepped up use of criminal sanctions in the immigration area.
