Illegal Reentry Now Top Reported Criminal Charge, Surpassing Illegal Entry

According to a recent report, illegal reentry to the U.S. has become the top criminal charge, as it accounts for almost a quarter of all criminal prosecutions, and almost half of all criminal immigration prosecutions filed in the first half of fiscal year 2011. Using data from the Justice Department, the report, from TRAC Immigration, a non-partisan organization out of Syracuse University, showed that there were 18,532 new prosecutions for illegal reentry during the first half of fiscal year 2011.
