Zero Tolerance, Infinite Problems
By Sara Libby

As prosecutors have aggressively pursued immigration cases under zero tolerance, there’s evidence they’re focusing less on other types of crimes. Cross-border drug prosecutions are going down, according to separate analyses by VOSD and the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a research center at Syracuse University. The U.S. attorney’s office disputed the idea that it’s prosecuting fewer drug cases, but declined to provide any numbers. Prosecutions for human smuggling – typically a felony – are also down.
