Prof. Emily Ryo is a co-author on new American Immigration Council Report
By Leslie Ridgeway
USC Gould School of Law Prof. Emily Ryo is a co-author of a recently released American Immigration Council (AIC) report on immigration enforcement that indicates a shift by the U.S. government toward a wider scope of arrests and deportations that go beyond government rhetoric about removing dangerous non-citizen criminals.

The study, “Changing Patterns of Interior Immigration Enforcement in the United States, 2016-2018,” reveals a sharp increase in the number of U.S. citizens encountered by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) across the Trump and Obama administrations. The research found that in the first year of the Trump administration, ICE encountered 27,540 U.S. citizens, whereas in the last year of the Obama administration, ICE encountered 5,940 U.S. citizens.
