The Cato Instititute on the State of Immigration Enforcement

Blog_rev4Cato at Liberty

Alex Nowrasteh on Cato at Liberty notes that, although President Trump’s administration is ramping up immigration enforcement in the interior of the United States and along the border, "the near-half-century low in illegal border crossers, the longer-settled illegal immigrant population inside of the country, and resistance by state and local governments are hampering his administration’s efforts to boost deportation. Try as he might, his administration will not be able to ramp up removals to the level seen in the first term of the Obama administration."  Recall that President Obama removed in the neighborhood of 400,000 noncitizens a year in his first term.
