ICE Deported 1,100 New Haveners
By Christopher Peak

More than 1,100 undocumented immigrants from the New Haven area were deported over the last two decades, according to new county-level data obtained by researchers. Since October 2001, almost 4,000 immigrants who said they lived in New Haven County faced deportation proceedings. Of those, roughly 1,120 were deported and another 260 voluntarily left the country. Judges let about 480 off the hook; prosecutors applied their discretion in only 70 cases. Another 420 cases are still pending, while the rest have been dealt with administratively. Those county-level figures were obtained by nonpartisan researchers at Syracuse Universityís Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), which uses the Freedom of Information Act to extract data on the federal governmentís enforcement, staffing and spending. TRACís team has relentlessly gone after immigration numbers, filing lawsuits against the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection.
