California’s Attorney General Says Immigration Should Be Decriminalized
By Roque Planas and Angelina Chapin

The Trump administration filed more than 94,000 prosecutions for illegal entry or re-entry last year, according to the Transactional Record Access Clearinghouse database at Syracuse University, topping the record set by Obama in 2013. The two charges accounted for 57 percent of the federal criminal docket in 2018. The federal government’s myopic focus on immigration prosecutions has come at a cost. Prosecutions for white collar crimes have plummeted by 40 percent over the last 20 years, according to TRAC, even though that period encompasses the fraud-fueled economic crisis that began in December 2007.
