By Paul Ingram

While about 14,000 are held because they are, according "convicted criminals," around 5,000 people are waiting for pending charges, and nearly 16,500 are in ICE detention because of immigration violations. According to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a non-partisan project at Syracuse University, about 61 percent of ICE detainees have no conviction, not even for a petty offense, and the number of "serious" criminals has hit a five-year low. At La Palma, about 92 percent of people do not have a conviction, TRAC said.
