    • December 13, 2013

    The District of New Mexico suddenly stands out as having the fastest growth in immigration prosecutions of any of the nation’s judicial districts. Arizona and Southern California districts actually show significant decreases in prosecutions. The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) reported a 46% spike in criminal prosecutions in the District of New Mexico for the first 11 months of fiscal year 2013. We expect to see that the New Mexico District will have prosecuted over 6,500 immigration cases by the end of the federal fiscal year.
