Arrests of migrants at US border fell under Trump

Wednesday, December 6, 2017

US immigration officials on Tuesday said arrests at the border had fallen in Donald Trump’s first eight months in office while rates of people arrested in the US away from the border soared.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) numbers provide the first detailed picture of the Trump administration’s immigration enforcement, which human rights advocates said seemed to be targeting people with deep ties to the US. Advocates are also concerned because the release showed the plight of people fleeing violence in Central America is still severe.
