HALF of all federal arrests are for immigration-related crimes: Pew report - Liberty Unyielding

In 2014, 61% of all federal arrests were of non-U.S. citizens, up from 43% in 2004. The share of arrests of U.S. citizens, on the other hand, fell to 39% from 57% a decade ago.

A disproportionate amount of arrests took place in areas near the southern border. Just five federal judicial districts bordering Mexico–one each in Arizona, California, and New Mexico, plus two in Texas–accounted for 61% of all federal arrests, regardless of crime category. Those districts produced 40% of federal arrests in 2004.

A Pew Research Center analysis of data from the Bureau of Justice Statistics shows that 50% of the 165,265 total arrests made by the federal government in 2014 were for immigration-related offenses.

In 2004, that figure was 28%.

Drug and firearms arrests, on the other hand, have dropped over the past 10 years. The share of federal arrests for narcotics crimes fell from 23% in 2004 to 14% in 2014. Gun arrests declined from 7% to 4% over the same period.
