    Immigrant deportation filings hit record high in 2018, new report shows

    Immigrant deportation filings hit record high in 2018, new report shows

    Last Updated Nov 8, 2018 5:32 PM EST

    A record high number of immigrants were ordered to be removed from the U.S. in 2018, a rise that many immigration advocates call the culmination of nearly two years of anti-immigration measures from the Trump administration. The president made immigration a central focus of the midterm election campaign.

    Immigration officials ordered 287,741 new deportations in the fiscal year ending September 30, 2018
    , according to the report from Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC). TRAC obtained the data from the Department of Homeland Security through Freedom of Information Act requests.


    It's the highest number of new removal filings since the group began tracking deportation orders in 1992.


    "It's a confirmation of everything we've seen coming," said Camille Mackler, director of immigration legal policy at the New York Immigration Coalition, in an interview with CBS News. "They've been arresting everyone and pushing for more deportations."


    According to TRAC's data, the most common reason for new deportations was "entry without inspection," accounting for 42.5 percent of new deportees. This group includes any undocumented individual living in the U.S. who hasn't declared themselves to immigration officials, Mackler said.


    Just over 5 percent of new removal filings were based on aggravated felony charges, and 1.3 percent were on the basis of possible terrorist ties, according to data compiled by TRAC.


    Immigrants from Mexico were the most frequently expelled nationality, accounting for just over 26 percent, or 73,339, new removal filings.


    Migrants from three Central American nations — including Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras — together accounted for nearly half of all new deportation filings, or 130,667 cases
    , according to TRAC's report. Those countries, wracked by violence and economic hardship, are the source of the migrant caravan currently making its way north through Mexico to the U.S. border.




    Courts in Texas ordered more new deportations than any other state, ordering 60,431
    new removals in the year ending September 30. Texas courts have led the number of new deportations since 2008, according to TRAC.


    The rise in new deportation filings stems from stricter enforcement policies, rather than an increase in immigration itself, said Mackler, who is also an immigration attorney.

    During his first week in office, President Trump issued Executive Order 13768, a measure that ballooned the list of immigrants eligible for immediate deportation, said Mackler.

    Signed on Jan. 25, 2017, the order authorized immigration officials to "employ all lawful means to enforce the immigration laws of the United States."


    The order banned sanctuary cities, a measure that was later found to be unconstitutional. It also expanded the criteria for deportation so that nearly any undocumented immigrant in the U.S. was deportable, a move that effectively dismantled a "priority system" that had been in place since 1996, said Luis Mancheno, an New York-based immigration attorney.


    "Before the Trump administration, courts would sometimes take into consideration factors and decide to not deport certain people," Mancheno told CBS News. A lack of criminal history, community ties, property ownership and family members already in the U.S. could all be reasons for a judge to ultimately choose not to deport someone, despite the individual not having legal status.


    The executive order, titled "Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States," was signed the same day as another order authorizing construction of the southern border wall.

    Load the Central Americans on barges in San Diego and let the Navy and Coast Guard ship them back.

    We want them gone by the thousands!

    Good for Trump!! But we need millions of those a year to get them all out, not less than 300,000. There's 30 million or more of these people in our country. Do the math, none of us will live long enough to see them all gone at this rate.

    Deportations up 9 percent in 2018; still below Obama peak years


    By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Thursday, September 6, 2018

    Immigration arrests and deportations are rising under the Trump administration, according to the latest statistics released Thursday — though they’re still far shy of the levels during the peak years of President Obama.


    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says it has
    removed more than 191,000 people through the first nine months of the fiscal year, which is 9 percent higher than the same period in 2017.

    Those deportations span both people nabbed at the border by Customs and Border Protection, and in the interior of the U.S. by ICE, where arrests are up 17 percent so far this year.


    Of the deportees, nearly all either had criminal records or were defying previous deportation orders.


    President Trump has put a major focus on interior enforcement of immigration laws, erasing Obama-era rules that had carved out most immigrants living in the U.S. without permission of any danger of deportation.


    And indeed, deportations over the last nine months are higher than the same period in fiscal year 2016, which was the last full year under Mr. Obama.


    But the numbers still can’t touch the records Mr. Obama set in the middle of his terms, when Hispanic leaders angrily dubbed him “deporter-in-chief.”

    In 2012, he had deported 310,000 people by this point — 40 percent more than Mr. Trump.


    Those numbers were boosted by the Secure Communities program, which saw ICE officers check through local prison and jail lists to see which inmates were deportable.


    By the end of the Obama administration, facing an outcry from the president’s liberal base, Homeland Security canceled that program and imposed stricter standards on whom it could net.


    That, combined with the Obama administration’s limits on the pool of immigrants it would target, caused deportations to plummet.


    Mr. Trump has tried to boost those numbers, but he’s run into roadblocks with sanctuary cities and states, which hinder their prisons’ and jails’ cooperation in turning over immigrants who entered the U.S. illegally.

    Good question. ordered 287,741 new deportations

    ordered doesn't = deported

    Perhaps they were
    told to go back, like the woman from Haiti who is still here 18 years later

    We have more than 20,000 ICE agents.

    That equals one ICE agent deporting one illegal a month.
