Yuma sheriff: Feds let go immigrants who commit crimes

Susan Long, a statistician and professor who examines data for the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University, said the government is prosecuting more immigrants than ever before even if the numbers have been declining. "I think it's important to look at what's going on because different border communities are experiencing different things at different times and they have different policies. A lot of this is discretionary as to whether or not you're going to prosecute illegal entry and re-entry," Long said. Immigration prosecutions in Arizona were down 15 percent between July 2014 and July 2015, according to data compiled by TRAC.
