Number of Immigrants on ICE's Alternatives to Detention Declines, Though Quality of These Data Remain in Question
(20 Jan 2023) After two years of steady growth of ICE’s Alternatives to Detention (ATD) program, the total population on ATD declined in two weeks by more than 20,000—from 376,030 down to 355,140—since December 31, 2022.

IRS Audits Few Millionaires But Targeted Many Low-Income Families in FY 2022
(04 Jan 2023) Former President Trump was not alone in having returns he filed while he was President allegedly escape detailed scrutiny by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Last year IRS revenue agents were only able to audit a small number of millionaire returns. Indeed, during FY 2022, the odds a millionaire was audited by an IRS revenue agent was just 1.1 percent.
