SU’s TRAC: ICE deporting more non-citizens than in Bush years
According to a recent report by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), newly released figures from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) show that during the first nine months of fiscal year (FY) 2010, more non-U.S. citizens were removed from the country than during any similar period in the administration of President George W. Bush.
In the first nine months of FY 2010, ICE investigations resulted in the removal of 279,035 individuals compared to 254,763 in the same nine month period during the final year of the Bush administration.
