US Policies Separate Families, Kill the Sick and Create Havoc on the Mexican Border
By Murphy Woodhouse and Sam McNeil

In a study recently released by the Syracuse University Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, researchers found that deportation cases opened by immigration officials dropped by a third in the last three months of 2011; between July and September of last year, ICE opened 58,639 cases and only 39,331 between October and December. The study's authors couldn't conclusively say if it was a direct result of new enforcement priorities, but it was a significant drop.
