Arrests On The Rise Among Illegal Immigrants

Arrests of illegal immigrants in Boston  are up significantly in the last fiscal year.  

Federal statistics  indicate a 50-percent increase in the arrests of illegal immigrants in  the 2017 fiscal year that ended last September.  

The statistics show the  increase is partly because of non-criminal arrests, which more than  tripled from the previous fiscal year.  

Immigration activists say the  numbers are rising because law-abiding people who have been allowed to  stay in the U.S. for years are now being removed.
