Statistics Show Obama Administration is Arresting Immigrants at Unprecedented LevelsPublished: Jan 26, 2015
The U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics recently released a report confirming what I have long been saying: the Obama administration is targeting immigrants for prosecution at unprecedented levels in order to bolster criminal deportation statistics to the benefit of serious criminals.
From the report:
Syracuse University's TRAC Immigration compiles more recent statistics. They have found that during FY 2014 the Obama administration reported 86,574 new immigration prosecutions. TRAC also found that prosecutions for immigration related crimes under the Obama administration are up 129 percent from 2004, and up 1,406 percent from 1994.
Remember when President Obama said deportations of "criminals" are up 70 percent under his administration? Well, now you know why.
