Trump’s win creates uncertainty for immigrants in New Mexico
By Uriel J. Garcia and Daniel J. Chacón, The Santa Fe New Mexican

The Obama administration has deported nearly 3 million immigrants from the country, nearly a million more than the Bush administration. Also, according to a recent report by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University, the number of immigration prosecutions in New Mexico federal courts increased 80 percent from 2011 to 2015. There were 2,078 cases in 2011 compared to 3,749 cases in 2015, according to that analysis, many of which result in prison time for immigrants before they are deported.
