Map: The percentage of people deported after being detained by immigration authorities
By Steve Timko

The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse took a two-month snapshot of people detained by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and looked at how they were released. It showed Nevada has one of the nation's higher rates for deporting people under threat of criminal prosecution if they return, what the federal government calls removal. Not all states had enough people detained to give statistically significant figures. These figures are for ICE detention last November and December. ICE has noted there are several variables that can affect the outcome of an immigration case and how long it is in immigration court. This could include criminal and immigration history and court workload. Undocumented aliens can be released from custody in a variety of ways. According to the TRAC study, the most common way is to be deported, followed by bonding out and being released on their own recognizance. People who bond out or get an O.R. release can still be removed later.
