The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University tracks deportations by several categories, including “most serious criminal conviction.” Of the roughly 5 million people deported from the U.S. between fiscal years 2003 and 2020, 47% had “no conviction,”according to TRAC. People whose most serious conviction was assault accounted for 3% of all deportees. The combined total of deported people convicted of either homicide, sexual assault or domestic violence made up 1.3% of the millions of people deported during that time.
