TRAC Report on Criminal Immigration Prosecutions

leave a comment »

The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) issued a report on trends in criminal immigration prosecutions. The report finds that the rate of reported prosecutions during the first three months of FY 2010 decreased by 8.8% compared to 2009 quarterly figures. If the prosecution continues at the same pace, the number of criminal prosecutions will reach 83,722 as opposed to 91,899 during FY 2009.  However, one should keep in mind that in 2009 prosecutions were at an all time high and when compared to five years ago when there were 37,614, the number of FY 2010 prosecutions are projected to be up 123 percent. The Obama administration has no doubt overall stepped up enforcement and criminal immigration prosecution.
