The number of undocumented immigrants arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement dropped 23 percent nationwide between Sept. 30, 2012, and August 2013, though it increased in a half-dozen cities, according to Homeland Security figures. The monthly average of undocumented immigrants arrested shot up by 78 percent in Buffalo, New York. At the same time it rose in Philadelphia by 10 percent, in New Orleans by 7 percent, in Detroit by 6 percent, and in Saint Paul, Minnesota, by 5 percent. The cities that showed the greatest decline in arrests of the undocumented were Miami, San Diego, Atlanta, Houston and Chicago, according to ICE data published by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse based at Syracuse University.
