Half of migrants tagged for deportation have no criminal record

Nearly half of the undocumented immigrants tagged by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in 2012-2013 for possible deportation had no criminal convictions, the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse says. TRAC, which is based at Syracuse University, analyzed ICE data for the 2012 and 2013 fiscal years and found that only 12 percent of the 436,000 people slapped with ICE detainers, or immigration holds, had been convicted of a serious crime. The figures also show wide disparities among the states, TRAC said in a report released earlier this week.
