Weapons Convictions Under Biden Are At Record High Levels
(24 Mar 2023) The latest available data from the Justice Department show that during January 2023 the government reported 992 new federal weapons convictions. According to the case-by-case information analyzed by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), this number is up from 731 convictions the previous month.

Decline in Immigration Detention Book-Ins and Migrants on ATD According to Latest Data from ICE
(17 Mar 2023) The most recent data released to the public by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) show that the number of immigrants booked into detention facilities fell in February to 19,731, down from just over 22,000 in January. The overall decline was driven by a decline in detentions stemming from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) rather than from ICE, who actually saw a very slight uptick in new detentions from about 6,500 in January to nearly 7,000 in February. This is consistent with CBP's recent report that they saw a sharp decline in Southwest land border encounters from 252,000 in December to 155,000 in February. See more...

False Reporting by Contractor on Alternatives to Detention Activities
(07 Mar 2023) What lies behind ICE's frequent posting of Alternatives to Detention (ATD) data that the agency now admits was incorrect? The data ICE had been posting for months showed that use of GPS ankle monitors had been increasing. ICE now reports this is incorrect, that ankle monitor usage is in fact way down, not up.
