More Immigrants Arrested, Fewer Deported Under Trump

An Orange County Sheriff's deputy keeps a watch over a group of immigration detainees in the medical and dental care area at the Theo Lacy Facility in Orange Calif. Tuesday Sept. 28 2010

The statistics reflect Trump's "commitment to enforce our immigration laws fairly and across the board", Homan said in a statement, adding in a conference call with reporters that the executive order had energized his officers. ICE stated that 75 percent of those arrested in 2017 were "convicted criminals".

The president "puts this out to distract from the real affairs of our country", said Angelica Salas, executive director of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights in Los Angeles.

It is likely a effect of the president's executive order, issued in January, that drastically expanded Ice agents' powers, effectively allowing them to target any undocumented migrant in the USA, regardless of their criminal history. 'We are always questioned why we arrest someone who is not a criminal, but those who illegally cross the border are breaking the law. Homan said Trump instructed ICE to concentrate on public safety and national security.

Immigration advocates and some cities with large immigrant populations have raised concerns about the stepped up enforcement in the interior of the country.

Federal immigration arrests are up 37.6 percent under President Donald Trump, at a rate of more 400 a day, including violent offenders and gang members across the United States. ICE has arrested 30,473 criminal aliens this year - 20 percent more than the 25,786 arrested over the same period a year ago.

"ICE deportations and large-scale enforcement operations all but stopped during the past eight years".

She was released and given three months to plan her return to Mexico, a country she left as a young girl.

"I don't think it's fair", Alves-Flores said in an interview. "They're going after people who have lived here for a long time".

"This administration has sought to create a lot of fear and anxiety in immigrant communities to the point where they've stoked fears that taking your child to the doctor or school could result in deportation", Healey said in an interview. They rose 5 percent in and around Los Angeles and dropped slightly in the San Francisco area. Trump, in an apparent warning to his fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director, said Friday, May 12, 2017, that James Comey had better hope there are no "tapes" of their conversations.

The data from ICE is only part of the arrest and deportation landscape.

"In New Hampshire, we are seeing extremely high levels of anxiety in immigrant communities, including among people who have been reporting to ICE on a regular basis for years", said Maggie Fogarty, co-director of the American Friends Service Committee in New Hampshire, which is active in immigration issues.
