DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson May Review Immigration Policy to Limit Deportations
By Allison Geller

Deportations of immigrants who have no criminal records, or have only been convicted of minor crimes, have specifically come under scrutiny. A recent Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse report found that only 1 percent of deportees from 2013 were drug traffickers, while most were convicted of minor crimes like traffic violations, immigration violations, or marijuana possession. Most had no criminal record at all.
