While deportation rates drop, the number of people held at detention centers steadily rises
By Beryl Lipton

Despite the drop in CBP arrests, the agency still leads all federal agencies in number of criminal convictions, garnering 47.2% of investigations leading to conviction, according to a recent report from Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC). Recent reports about the standards of detention within immigrant detention centers makes the growing backlog of detained individuals that much more concerning. With a lack of proper detention standards for CBP arrests and a failure within existing facilities to implement the standards in place, the concern that atrocities might grow up alongside growing populations is a credible one.
