ICE Arrests Plateau


The total number of arrests by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has risen under President Donald Trump, new data reveal, but the numbers have now plateaued, reaching levels below or in line with much of the Obama administration.

“Current ICE arrests remain only half the levels of five years ago,” noted the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a Syracuse University-based center which published the arrest information.

Throughout most of its existence, ICE arrested suspected illegal immigrants under the set of priorities called the Secure Communities Program, a broad-based mandate that instructed ICE to target for removal, “public safety and national security threats, those who have violated our nation’s immigration laws, including those who have failed to comply with a final order of removal, and those who have engaged in fraud/willful misrepresentation in connection with official government matters.”
