ICE Arrests Up 28 pct, But Remain at Half of 2012 Levels
By TCR Staff

The number of administrative arrests made by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials rose from 108,372 in 2016 ,to 139,552 in 2017—an increase of over 28 percent. While these interior arrests have been on the rise since 2015, they still remain at half the levels they were between 2008 and 2012, according to an independent report from a group tracking US immigration enforcement. The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) Immigration Project is a comprehensive, multi-year effort at Syracuse University to “systematically go after very detailed information from the government, check it for accuracy and completeness and then make it available in an understandable way to the American people, Congress, immigration groups and others.” In addition to collecting and analyzing arrest-by-arrest level data, TRAC offers detailed reports on the handling of asylum matters by over 200 judges, as well as a library of government watchdog reports.
