Detentions of immigrants in the United States fell 39 percent between the end of Fiscal Year 2012 and 2014, recent studies published Wednesday shows.

ICE detained about 9,000 people per month in the 18 months between October 2012 and March 2014. The results are based on the number of detentions as per ICE detention orders obtained by TRAC.
