The U.S. Government Accountability Office has released an overview of immigrant arrests, detentions and removals across the United States over the past four years. Priority for apprehension falls under three levels with the highest representing threats to national security, border security and public safety while the others take into account misdemeanants, new immigration violators and other offences. Back in 2015, the number of enforcement and removal operation (ERO) arrests stood at 112,870 and that increased to 151,889 in 2017 before declining slightly to 151,497 last year. Each year between 2015 and 2018, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) removed people from almost 200 countries with the 2018 total amounting to 261,523.

The report provides an interesting breakdown of the leading nationalities for ERO arrests and removals. Detentions were highest for Mexican citizens at 136,406, followed by Guatemala with 120,745 and Honduras with 78,630. When it comes to removals by country of citizenship in 2018, Mexico was once again in first place with 139,330. Guatemala came second with 52,755 while Honduras had the third-highest total – 32,180. The number of Indian citizens removed from the U.S. has increased steadily in recent years, climbing from 296 in 2015 to 831 in 2018, placing it among the top-10 countries for removals last year. According to the GAO, males and convicted criminals accounted for the majority of ICE arrests and removals over the past four fiscal years.
