GOOD NEWS: Immigration Arrests, Deportation Up In Iowa And Its Neighboring States

Associated Press
Immigration arrests and deportations increased significantly during the past year in Iowa and its neighboring states, federal data shows.
Those numbers have spiked under the heightened focus on enforcing U.S. immigration laws by President Donald Trump’s administration.
Immigration arrests are up 67 percent and deportations 55 percent in the region that includes Iowa, according to the data.
“I can only speak for the Latino immigrants and the undocumented, and there is a lot of fear, a lot of apprehension and uncertainty,” Michael Reyes, who is from Davenport and is the state director of Iowa’s chapter of the League of United Latin American Citizens, told the bureau last year. “There are things that are happening now as a result of this current administration, and it’s got (immigrants living in the country without full legal status) in fear.”
After making immigration reform one of the central staples of his campaign, Trump immediately instructed his administration to enforce the nation’s immigration laws more forcefully.
