Fines for illegal hiring rare
By Ginnie Graham

Since 2005, Oklahoma deportations skyrocketed by 324 percent, and voluntary deportations jumped by 53 percent, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a nonprofit organization that analyzes federal data. Nationally, prosecutions of illegal immigrants by the U.S. Justice Department from immigration service referrals have increased by 115 percent since 2006, with "re-entry of a deported alien" as the top-ranked leading charge, according to Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse. Criminal immigration prosecutions hit an all-time high nationally in 2009.
