Trump Administration Increases Immigration Enforcement at Business
By Alex Nowrasteh


President Trumpís ICE is making more administrative arrests and a greater percentage of those come from worksite enforcement (Figure 2). In 2016, only 0.35 percent of all of ICEís administrative arrests (those that ICE makes itself) were at worksites. In 2018, 3.7 percent of all of ICEís non-custodial arrests were at worksites. Since 2017, administrative arrests are up 8.9-fold compared to a 5.6-fold increase in criminal arrests over the same time. As a share of all ICE administrative arrests, those conducted at worksites are up about 10.7-fold over 2016, the last year of the Obama administration, and 8.8-fold since 2017.....[Citing TRAC research].
