Fewer face deportation because of criminal charges, data shows
By Ryan Gabrielson

The share of potential deportees charged with an aggravated felony – including violent, drug and theft-related crimes – has remained steady the past five years at 4 percent. The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University gathered the data through a Freedom of Information Act request. In its own report, the organization found that fewer of ICE’s deportation cases nationwide involve accused criminals.
