The Defenders: ICE arrests high in our region
By Nathan Morabito

Immigration and Customs Enforcement is arresting more illegal immigrants in our region than in any other field office in the country except Dallas, according to a review of the most recent federal data. Arrest data show the Atlanta Field Office, which includes the Carolinas and Georgia, has arrested more people over the last 15 months than San Antonio, Houston and similarly-sized New Orleans and Miami. ICE made 15,189 arrests in the field office during that timeframe and Mecklenburg County is one of the top 25 counties in the country for arrests too, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse.
