Law catches up to ‘crimmigrant’ arrested at least 40 times
By Laura C. Morel

Illegal re-entry after deportation is the second most common charge in federal prosecutions thus far this fiscal year, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a research organization based at Syracuse University. There were about 20,000 prosecutions in 2008, during the Bush administration. Through May of this fiscal year, there had already been 24,577 prosecutions. Before the federal prosecutors take an illegal re-entry case, ICE checks an illegal immigrant’s deportation and criminal history, and whether that person has already been ordered deported.
