From The Washington Post:

The Department of Homeland Security’s use of a controversial tool to deport illegal immigrants fell 30 percent in recent months, continuing a longer-term decline dating back several years, a new report says. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in April lodged 30 percent fewer requests with local police departments to hold immigrants targeted for deportation than the agency had in October, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), an independent research organization at Syracuse University.
