Arrests of undocumented immigrants in Boston are up 50 percent
Boston Globe - 02/21/2018
In November 2014, Obama announced a package of executive actions that prioritized arresting and deporting criminals, people considered threats to national security, and recent border-crossers. Those steps resulted in a decline in arrests during the final two years of his presidency, Rachel Rosenbloom, a Northeastern University law professor who specializes in immigration policy, said in an e-mail.
Now, she said, “enforcement has climbed back up to the outrageous levels it reached back in 2013 and 2014, and it seems likely that it will continue to rise.”
