Back in the United States, in immigration news, newly released U.S. government data show the Trump administration is deporting immigrants at a record rate—40 percent higher than the previous record pace set by the Obama administration. Immigration and Customs Enforcement reported Wednesday it deported more than 41,000 people through the end of April—up from about 30,000 deported during the same period last year. More than a third of those arrested by ICE had no criminal convictions.
