Immigration Crackdown: Illegal Immigration Leads Federal Arrests "Illegal immigration topped the list of federal arrests between 2005 and 2009, according to the Justice Department’s Bureau of Justice Statistics. The bureau’s report released Wednesday shows a 23 percent increase each year in the arrest of illegal immigrants, with half occurring at the U.S.-Mexican border in Arizona, California, New Mexico, and Texas.

In 2009, the most recent year for which complete numbers were available, some 84,749 people were arrested and charged strictly with immigration offenses. In 2005, that figure was 38,041."
