Key Figures in America's Immigration Enforcement

As immigration reform is set to take precedent for President Obama and his administration for 2013, figures are becoming available about the effort and cost for the nation's immigration enforcement agencies.  The recent release by the Migration Policy Institute, entitled "Immigration Enforcement in the United States: The Rise of a Formidable Machinery", offers important insights into key statistical figures.

The report also details statistics regarding the number of Border Patrol agents, total spending for FBI, Drug Enforcement Administration, Secret Service, U.S. Marshals Service and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives combined, as well as statistics on the number of immigrants being detained and tried in federal cases.  The report in full can be read here.
