Today the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) sent a letter to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) charging ICE with committing "serious legal and procedural violations" by withholding performance data relating to immigration enforcement.
Is it possible that the Administration is attempting to prevent the release of these statistics prior to the mid-term elections because of the potential prejudicial effect the statistics may have on turn-out of Hispanic voters in key Congressional races?
The letter was dated October 4, 2010, and was signed by Susan B. Long and David Burnham, Co-Directors of TRAC.
