The FY 2016 enforcement statistics from the Office of Immigration Statistics (OIS) shows the deportation numbers credited to ICE are the lowest since 2006. Aliens removed from the interior in 2016 have declined 73 percent from 2009.
The Department of Homeland Security released a report on ICE enforcement statistics for the 2016. All of the deportations increase came from cases of aliens arrested by the Border Patrol, not interior enforcement.

It would now appear that the Obama administration is acting in bad faith to try to cram as many ideologically simpatico officials as possible into senior civil service positions before they depart for Chicago or wherever they will go after decamping from the White House and the Old and New Executive Office Buildings.

MAP UPDATE: New Sanctuary Cities added in Pennsylvania, California, Vermont. Removed in New York, Illlinois.
Sanctuary jurisdictions remain a significant public safety problem throughout the country. About 300 jurisdictions have been identified by ICE as having a policy that is non-cooperative and obstructs immigration enforcement (as of September 2015).

Although on its face, and by its purpose, this appropriations bill deals with national defense and military matters, there are a few interesting immigration and homeland security items embedded in its 3,000-plus pages that are worth noting. This first post on the bill addresses three different issues it contains:
On December 2, the House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed the Fiscal Year 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA 2017), the appropriations bill for the entire Defense Department. This i

Maybe Chicago could also set up little Lucite donation cubes at all of the Starbucks and Chipotles throughout the city so that when the privileged go for their lattes or salsa salads, they can pitch in a few bills to help out some deserving alien criminal in need of representation in his deportation proceedings. 
So much has been in the news lately about "fake news" — kind of an oxymoron, really, when you think about the questionable quality of media today and the partisan divide that cleaves even our mavens o

62 percent of all refugees referred (or submitted) for resettlement by the UNHCR in 2015 were for the United States. The UNHCR itself acknowledges that almost all refugees submitted for resettlement are in circumstances “where there are no immediate medical, social, or security concerns which would merit expedited processing.”
At a time when refugee protection is addressed on a global scale, the report, “UNHCR Projected Global Resettlement Needs 2017”, provides us with insightful information about submission categories and acceptance rates, top resettlement countries of origin and destination, and more. It also suggests how badly in need of reform the entire refugee system is.

Among other things, the report measures total level of illegal entry, the probability of apprehension, and the effect of law enforcement in deterring illegal entry.

The Center for Immigration Studies is an independent, non-partisan, non-profit, research organization.
Introduction

The Center for Immigration Studies is an independent, non-partisan, non-profit, research organization. Since our founding in 1985, we have pursued a single mission – providing immigration policymakers, the academic community, news media, and concerned citizens with reliable information about the social, economic, environmental, security, and fiscal consequences of legal and illegal immigration into the United States.

The Center is governed by a diverse board of directors that has included active and retired university professors, civil rights leaders, and former government officials. Our research and analysis has been funded by contributions and grants from dozens of private foundations, from the U.S. Census Bureau and Justice Department, and from hundreds of generous individual donors.

Our board, our staff, our researchers, and our contributor base are not predominantly "liberal" or predominantly "conservative." Instead, we believe in common that debates about immigration policy that are well-informed and grounded in objective data will lead to better immigration policies.

The data collected by the Center during the past quarter-century has led many of our researchers to conclude that current, high levels of immigration are making it harder to achieve such important national objectives as better public schools, a cleaner environment, homeland security, and a living wage for every native-born and immigrant worker. These data may support criticism of US immigration policies, but they do not justify ill feelings toward our immigrant community. In fact, many of us at the Center are animated by a "low-immigration, pro-immigrant" vision of an America that admits fewer immigrants but affords a warmer welcome for those who are admitted.
