Immigration prosecutions leaping

TRAC -  The latest available data from the Justice Department show that during March 2018 the government reported 7,020 new immigration prosecutions. According to the case-by-case information analyzed by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, this number is up 23.9 percent over the previous month.  This brought the total for the first six months of FY 2018 to 35,787 new immigration prosecutions.

If this activity continues at the same pace for the remaining half of this fiscal year, the annual total of prosecutions will be 71,574 - up 19.5% over the past fiscal year when the number of prosecutions totaled 59,910.
