immigration remains the major focus of all federal criminal enforcement efforts accounting for fully 52 percent of all federal prosecutions in FY 2016. During the 12 months ending September 30, immigration prosecutions were more than all other federal crimes put together -- including drugs, weapons, fraud, and violations of the thousands of other criminal provisions that the federal government is responsible for enforcing.
