TRAC Immigration Resource

The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse
(TRAC) has launched TRAC Immigration, a resource
for reports, government studies (including CRS reports)
and statistics/data on a variety of immigration issues.

"Currently available on TRAC's Immigration site are reports
focusing on Border Patrol apprehensions along the border,
Border Patrol staffing, criminal enforcement in the federal
district courts and government inspections activities at the
designated ports of entry. Additional reports and studies are
under development on a range of subjects such as the granting
of immigration benefits — green cards, naturalization,
affirmative asylum, etc — and the workings of the immigration
courts. These reports and the latest data obtained from the
government will be posted to [the] site as the information is
obtained from the various agencies, checked for accuracy and
completeness and analyzed. "(TRAC Immigration, About This Project,

TRAC is a data gathering, data research and data distribution
organization associated with Syracuse University.
