Napolitano reviews South Texas border operations
By Christopher Sherman

Data released Tuesday by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University showed that the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement initiated 39,331 deportation cases in the final three months of 2011 about one third fewer than in the previous quarter. Even adjusted for seasonal variance, it appeared there were about 10,000 fewer cases than would be expected, according to a statement from TRAC. "Even with fewer filings there is little evidence that these cases are being better targeted toward serious criminals," the statement said.
