A record high number of immigrants were ordered to be removed from the U.S. in 2018, a new report shows. The report comes after President Trump made immigration a central focus of the midterm election campaign.
Immigration officials ordered 287,741 new deportations in the fiscal year ending September 30, 2018, according to a new report from Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC). TRAC obtained the data from the Department of Homeland Security through Freedom of Information Act requests.
It's the highest number of new removal filings since the group began tracking deportation orders in 1992.
Just over 5 percent of new removal filings were based on aggravated felony charges, and 1.3 percent were on the basis of possible terrorist ties, according to data compiled by TRAC.
Immigrants from Mexico were the most frequently expelled nationality, accounting for just over 26 percent, or 73,339, new removal filings, according to TRAC.
Migrants from Central American nations - including Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras - together accounted for nearly half of all new deportation filings, or 130,667 cases.
Courts in Texas ordered more new deportations than any other state, ordering 60,431 new removals.

So? What about it cbs, you got a problem with that? TOO BAD.
I think CBS has their title wrong. Immigrants come here legally. Only Illegal Aliens would be deported.
We need an even larger number deported in the next two months.
“Immigration officials ordered 287,741 new deportations in the fiscal year ending September 30, 2018,”
So how many were actually deported?
so that would be roughly 2900 possible "really bad" guys? comments, MSM? Shep, care to comment? Joy Behar, anything to say? what about you, Jeb!?
They aren’t legal “immigrants:...they are illegal alien invaders...aka...criminals. Get OUT of OUR country!!!
All from one family no doubt.
even if we only have 12 million illegals in our country, it would take 40 years to deport them all at this rate. I’m happy that it’s better than it has been, but we need to up this again by a factor of ten.
