Trump’s Justice Department to end ‘catch and release’ immigration policy
By Andrea Noble

Immigration offenses make up more than half of all federal criminal prosecutions, according to fiscal 2016 data from the Justice Department that was analyzed by Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. Federal law enforcement agencies prosecuted 69,636 criminal immigration offenses during that time, down from a peak of 97,384 prosecutions in fiscal 2013 — but still far higher than the 37,529 prosecutions reported in fiscal 2006.
