TRAC Study: Surge in Immigration Prosecutions Continues

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on June 17, 2008

Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse [TRAC] Report: “Federal immigration prosecutions in March 2008 continued their recent and highly unusual surge, apparently reaching an all-time high, according to timely data from the Justice Department. The total of 9,350 such prosecutions was up by almost 50% from the previous month and 73% from the previous year.

The dramatic changes in the number of defendants charged with immigration-related charges are based on case-by-case information obtained by TRAC under the Freedom of Information Act from the Executive Office for United states Attorneys.”
