    Flap Erupts on Whether ICE Deporting Criminals as Claimed

    WASHINGTON—An academic group that uses official data to track government programs claims only a tiny portion of individuals deported from the U.S. earlier this year were removed due to criminal convictions—a claim that Immigrations and Custom Enforcement (ICE) denies.
    “Despite the administration’s rhetoric of deporting ‘criminals’ from this country, the latest data from the Immigration Courts through June 2019 shows only 2.8 percent of recent Department of Homeland Security (DHS) filings based deportability claims on any alleged criminal activity,” the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University said in a report made public Friday.
    “This is way down from the emphasis on deporting criminals that prevailed a decade ago,” TRAC said in its report. The group uses the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to obtain official data from multiple federal agencies across a wide spectrum of activities, then releases regular reports based on statistical analyses.
    The report Friday was based on data obtained from filings in federal immigration courts by the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) ICE.
    By comparison, more than 16 percent of deportability claims filed in 2010 were based on alleged criminal activity, according to TRAC.
    President Donald Trump said July 12 that multiple raids were being launched by ICE agents across the nation aimed at finding and removing individuals involved in criminal activities.


    “It starts on Sunday, and they’re going to take people out and they’re going to bring them back to their countries. We’re focused on criminals as much as we can, before we do anything else,” Trump said.
    No numbers for how many deportations have resulted thus far from the raids have been made public by the government, but the TRAC report raised questions about the credibility of official immigration statistics.
    “Similarly, even the number of Immigration Court filings citing criminal grounds is way down,” TRAC reported. “Despite the rising number of ICE interior arrests and individuals who are detained, fewer and fewer immigrants in the Immigration Court’s growing workload are being cited as deportable based upon criminal activity.
    The total of such cases during the first nine months of the federal Fiscal Year 2019—October 1 through June 30—only 7,458 cases were filed, TRAC said.
    “If this same pace continues for the remaining three months of the years, the total is still unlikely to reach 10,000. A decade or more ago immigrants with criminal records or alleged criminal activity involved 30,000 to 40,000 court filings each year,” the Syracuse group said.
    The data made public by the TRAC report directly conflicts with previous statements by federal officials.


    For example, ICE Executive Associate Director Nathalie R. Asher said in April that “the enforcement statistics from January-March 2019 illustrate that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is committed to arresting and removing unlawfully present aliens, with criminal histories, who threaten public safety and endanger immigrant communities.
    “During this time period, more than 85 percent of aliens arrested by ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations officers, and more than 91 percent of aliens removed from the interior of the United States, had received criminal convictions or pending criminal charges.”
    Asked late Friday by The Epoch Times for a response to the TRAC claims, a senior ICE official who reviewed the group’s report said “it clearly is not accurate.”
    The official, who asked not to be identified, said “we don’t need some sort of criminal activity to get someone removed. We remove people from the country because they are removable administratively.
    “Yes, they may have a criminal background but that’s not why they are removable. They are removable because they are in this country illegally. They aren’t in the court because of the criminal activity but because they are removable.”
    Criminal activity is noted in the court filing, he said, in cases involving an individual who committed a crime that would result in termination of a previously legal status.


    “If someone has a legal status, something like a Legal Permanent Resident (LPR), but they participate in crimes involving what is called ‘moral turpitude’ like serious crimes that involve a year or more in prison, then we can say ‘hey, this is the criminal background of that person, this is why their LPR status needs to be revoked.”
    A TRAC spokesman could not be reached Saturday for comment on the official’s statement.
    Acting U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director told CBS News July 7 that his agency’s raids aim “to deport one million illegal aliens with final orders for deportation. They are ready to just perform their mission, which is to go and find and detain and then deport the approximately one million people who have final removal orders.”
    The people targeted by the raids, Cuccinelli said, “have been all the way through the due process and have final removal orders.”
