Just How Strong Immigration Enforcement Is Now
By Candice Bernd

As the Senate Judiciary Committee continues to work on the enforcement title of the "Gang of Eight’s" immigration reform legislation, questions regarding the statistics behind deportations, immigration cases and court orders, government spending and the numbers behind undocumented criminal activity take on a new significance. With the contention between opposing interests in the immigration debate, a gap in statistics seems to have exacerbated the clash over whether or not immigration law enforcement is too tough or not tough enough. That's why staff at the Bipartisan Policy Center put together a document that examines the current state of interior immigration enforcement by the numbers. The document looks at the records kept by the Transactional Record Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) based on a long series of Freedom of Information Act requests.
