Harris County Leads in ICE Community Arrests Statewide, 4th in U.S.
By Elizabeth Trovall

More undocumented immigrants have been arrested in their communities by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in Harris County than any other county in Texas, according to new data from Syracuse University. Over an 8-month period, immigration authorities picked up and arrested 835 people throughout Harris County. Only three other counties nationwide had more community arrests. Susan Long, director of Syracuse University’s TRAC research center –which tracks immigration law enforcement data–, said that “when it comes to community arrests, that is arrests where ICE picks up someone who is living or working in the community, then Harris County is fourth in the country.”
