ABSTRACT

Immigration Enforcement Actions: 2015   [open pdf - 239KB]

From the Introduction: "The immigration enforcement actions covered in this report include initial enforcement actions (determinations of inadmissibility by CBP [U.S. Customs and Border Protection] Field Operations officers (OFO), apprehensions by CBP Border Patrol agents, and arrests by ICE [U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement] officers), initiation of removal proceedings, intakes into immigration detention, and repatriations (removals and returns). With the exception of inadmissibility determinations at the ports of entry, all of these actions declined in frequency from 2014 to 2015. The reductions were likely driven by the continued decline in unauthorized migration from Mexico in 2015 and a temporary reversal in the previous trend of increasing unauthorized migration from the Northern Triangle of Central America. This report provides details on the enforcement actions in 2015 and changes from earlier years."
