  • Immigrant arrests, deportations increase in Colorado during first year of Trump presidency

However, Immigration and Customs Enforcement's apprehension of people picked up for deportation away from the border increased 25 percent from past year.

Despite the decline in Border Patrol arrests, officials at Immigration and Customs (ICE) report a significant increase in arrests within the US.

Homan stressed that 92 percent of all ICE arrests this fiscal year were of those who had criminal convictions.

"Overall removals are down because the border's under better control than it has been in 45 years", he said. No longer would they only arrest unauthorized immigrants who had committed serious crimes or had entered the country recently.

About 58 percent of Border Patrol arrests were people from countries other than Mexico - up from 54 percent a year earlier - largely from Central America.

The overwhelming majority of border arrests - 303,916 - happened along the south-western border. "All undocumented people in the United States now have reason to fear deportation, regardless of the strength of their ties to the U.S.", the report said.

The drop brings arrests along the US-Mexico border to the lowest level since 1971, according to immigration officials.

The new numbers, which include the last months of the Obama administration, provide new ammunition to Trump critics who question the need to spend billions of dollars on a border wall if crossings are already dropping.

"Yeah, the traffic is down".

Clara Long, a senior researcher for the U.S. program at Human Rights Watch, said people arrested in the interior were more likely to have deep connections to the USA through family, friends and work. "We use walls and fences to protect things". "But the fact remains that after unprecedented investments in border security over the last decade, the border has become harder to cross and fewer people are trying".

Ronald Vitiello, Customs and Border Protection's acting deputy commissioner, said he was "very concerned" about increases in families and children crossing in recent months.

The actual number of illegal borders crossings isn't known because many people slip in undetected.

"We have clearly seen the successful results of the president's commitment to supporting the frontline officers and agents of (the Department of Homeland Security) as they enforce the law and secure our borders", said Elaine Duke, acting secretary.

On Tuesday DHS took a much harsher position on such people, suggesting they abuse U.S. immigration laws and pose a threat to the US.

South of the Arizona border in the Mexican town of Nogales, numerous deportees who were eating breakfast Monday at a dining room run by a nonprofit group had been picked up in the US far from the border. AP writer Anita Snow contributed from Nogales, Mexico.
