ICE Is Detaining More People Than Ever—and for Longer
By Isabela Dias

Although immigration detention has exponentially increased over the past two decades, during the second term of the Obama administration, ICE began to prioritize the arrests of immigrants with criminal convictions. Under the Trump administration's enforcement priorities, however, that is no longer the case. According to a recent assessment by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University, despite the higher number of individuals detained by ICE from September of 2016 through December of 2018, fewer had committed serious crimes.
