Immigration arrests overall rose 32.6 percent since Trump took office, with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement arresting 21,362 immigrants, mostly convicted criminals, from January through mid-March.
In the first weeks of President Trump's tenure, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) made 32.6 percent more arrests than a year earlier - 21,326 undocumented immigrants arrested from January 20 to March 13, versus 16,104 in the same period a year earlier - and 5,441 of those immigrants had no criminal record, The Washington Post reports.

"We are very appreciative of the continued confidence placed in our company by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement", GEO chairman and CEO George C. Zoley said in a prepared statement.
