A perfect example of why immigration reform debate needs more sense, sanity
By Esther J. Cepeda

The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University recently released an analysis of ICE information showing that "no more than 14 percent of the 'detainers' issued by the government in FY 2012 and the first four months of FY 2013 met the agency's stated goal of targeting individuals who pose a serious threat to public safety or national security. In fact, roughly half of the 347,691 individuals subject to an ICE detainer (47.7 percent) had no record of a criminal conviction, not even a minor traffic violation."
