In New Lawsuit, Advocates Seek Documents on Civil Immigration Arrests

ICE’s Philadelphia field office is responsible for enforcing federal civil immigration law in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Delaware. Data compiled by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University indicates that the office’s arrest numbers jumped dramatically after the inauguration of President Trump, from just over 3,000 arrests in 2016 to more than 4,000 in 2017. In the first six months of 2018 alone, ICE’s Philadelphia office arrested 2,995 people.
