Immigration Prosecutions Returning to Bush-era Standards Under Obama

Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) has recently compiled some Department of Justice data that shows that immigration prosecutions for April 2009 have returned to Bush-era standards. The month of April saw 9,307 prosecutions, an 8.5% increase from March. Prosecutions are also up 146.7% from 2004 levels.

Prosecutions have risen every month since President Obama was inaugurated in Janurary of this year.
