Deporting “Bad Hombres”? The Profile of Deportees under Widespread Versus Prioritized Enforcement
By Catalina Amuedo-Dorantes, Thitima Puttitanun, and Ana P. Martinez-Donate

A 2011 American Immigration Lawyers Association report found that many people entered deportation proceedings under Secure Communities despite lacking a serious criminal history. The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (2014) examined millions of deportation records since the launch of Secure Communities and found that the program did not increase the removal of its primary targets, noncitizens who committed crimes other than minor violations. Instead, reports found communities were being ripped apart, with impacts extending to businesses, parental school involvement, and overall community cohesiveness (Hagan, Castro, and Rodriguez 2010)........[Citing TRAC data and reports].
