“Crimmigration” is the place where the criminal justice system and the immigration system intersect. Immigration-related offenses constitute 40% of all federal prosecutions, and one out of 10 people are in federal prison today due to an immigration offense. Local police cooperation with immigration enforcement agencies has driven communities underground, and criminal convictions can trigger mandatory detention and deportation.
