On immigrant crime, Trump's right. Americans deserve more data.
By Nolan Rappaport

The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University uses the Freedom of Information Act to obtain data on crimes committed by immigrants, which has produced information on prosecutions for criminal immigration law violations. According to TRAC, immigration is the major focus of federal criminal enforcement efforts. Criminal prosecutions for illegal entry, illegal re-entry, and similar immigration violations made up 52 percent of all federal prosecutions in FY 2016. During the 12 months ending September 30, there were 69,636 immigration prosecutions.
