King County narrows types of crime for immigrant jail holds
By Manuel Valdes

In fiscal year 2012 and in the first four months of fiscal year 2013, no more than 14 percent of detainers issued by ICE nationwide met the agency's stated goal of targeting individuals who pose a serious threat, according to a report from the Syracuse University-based research center Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse. The center reported that 47.7 percent of the 347,691 individuals issued a detainer had no record of a criminal conviction, or even a minor traffic violation.
