It has been reported that fewer immigrants have been arrested by California authorities and turned over the federal government. This is due to a new law called the Trust Act that was designed to hold fewer individuals for deportation. When the law was originally passed in January, however, it was not clear how much of a drop that there would be.
California has reportedly accounted for a third of deportations that have occurred due to actions by the U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement Secure Communities program. While reporting has not been completed, reporting that has taken place from Sheriff's departments has so far demonstrated a 44 percent drop in deportations.
