Table 41. Aliens Removed By Criminal Status And Region And Country Of Nationality: Fiscal Year 2016

The 2016 Yearbook of Immigration Statistics is a compendium of tables that provide data on foreign nationals who are granted lawful permanent residence (i.e., immigrants who receive a “green card”), admitted as temporary nonimmigrants, granted asylum or refugee status, or are naturalized. The Yearbook also presents data on immigration enforcement actions, including apprehensions and arrests, removals, and returns.

2 Includes countries with less than 10 aliens removed per year.

3 The counting methodology for administrative arrests by ICE ERO was revised to align with ICE ERO reporting for 2016; for earlier years, only one administrative arrests could be counted for the same person on the same day. Note: Beginning in 2008, excludes criminals removed by Customs and Border Protection (CBP); CBP ENFORCE does not identify if aliens removed were criminals. Data are current as of October 2016.
