More Than Half 52% Of Federal Prosecutions R Immigration Related


Immigration violations are majority of federal cases for first time:


FOX NEWS REPORTS: 

For the first time, immigration violations now make up more than half of all federal prosecutions, easily outpacing drugs, fraud, organized crime, weapons charges and other crimes.

In the last fiscal year, 52 percent of all federal prosecutions - 69,636 cases - involved an immigration violation, compared to 63,405 prosecutions for all other federal crimes, according to a new study by Syracuse University's Transactional Records Clearinghouse, which sued the Justice Department to obtain the information.

"Imagine the other crimes that are not being prosecuted because immigration is such a priority," study co-author Susan Long told Fox News.

The two most common charges pursued by prosecutors relate to illegal entry or re-entry to the U.S. The penalty for a conviction on either charge can range from a few months to typically two years in federal prison for a person who re-enters the U.S. after being deported.
