Border Drug Cases Hit 20-Year Low as Prosecutors Focused on Migrants
By Richard A. Oppel Jr.

Case-by-case records on immigration and drug prosecutions were analyzed for The New York Times by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University, known as TRAC, which compiles data obtained through continuing court litigation with the Justice Department. Researchers said the data were striking. “We cannot say for certain why we saw a dip in those numbers coinciding with the rise in immigration prosecutions, but it is likely that those two things are related,” said Christine Mehta, an assistant research professor at TRAC and Syracuse’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.
