Deportations From The U.S. Reached A Record High In 2013

Pedro Pimentel Rios


Deportations from the United States have gained pace under the Obama administration and 2013 was a record year. All in all, 437, 421 people were deported, according to newly released Department of Homeland Security data. That’s over twice as many as ten years ago. Interestingly, 363, 000 (83 percent) of the deportations were carried out without appearing before a judge. 198, 000 people deported in fiscal year 2013 had criminal convictions compared to 240, 000 who did not. Since Obama took office, over 2 million people have been deported from the United States.

Between 2002 and 2012, deportation levels rose in the United States. 165, 000 illegal immigrants were removed in 2002 and this to 358, 000 in 2008 at the end of George W. Bush’s presidency.
