ICE Should Turn Over Deportation Records to TRAC Researchers
By Dan Moffett

The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), a research center at Syracuse University, has tried to get the information from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for several months now, without success. Through the Freedom of Information Act, TRAC requested case-by-case information in anonymous form on the 75,044 Notices to Appear that the agency filed in immigration courts during the first four months of 2012. TRAC said it wanted the information "to allow a fuller public examination of the characteristics of the individuals ICE was seeking to deport."
