ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations Report: Fiscal Year 2014 [December 19, 2014] [open pdf - 314KB]
"This report summarizes U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 civil immigration enforcement and removal operations. ICE shares responsibility for enforcing the Nation's civil immigration laws with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). In executing its enforcement duties, ICE focuses on two core missions: (1) identifying and apprehending public safety threats--including criminal aliens and national security targets--and other removable individuals within the United States; and (2) detaining and removing individuals apprehended by ICE and CBP officers and agents patrolling our Nation's borders. Each year, ICE immigration enforcement is impacted by operational factors, including the size of the removable population found in the interior and encountered at the border by CBP, appropriated resources, fluctuating migration patterns, and the legal authorities that govern ICE's activities. In 2014, each of these factors affected ICE operations and contributed to the number of ICE's FY 2014 removals, which was 315,943, down from 368,644 in FY 2013. This report sets forth and analyzes ICE's FY 2014 immigration enforcement statistics"
