The Landscape of Immigration Detenton in the United States
By Emily Ryo, J.D., Ph.D., and Ian Peacock, M.A.

TRAC Fellows Ryo and Peacock analyze three major datasets in this study. The first dataset—the Detention Data—contains government records pertaining to all individuals who were detained by ICE during fiscal year 2015 (355,729 individuals, including juveniles). To be included in the Detention Data, the individual had to have been detained at some point during fiscal year 2015, but his or her detention need not have begun nor ended in fiscal year 2015. The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) obtained the Detention Data from ICE under the Freedom of Information Act(FOIA).
