Summary:

The Obama Administrationís policy to focus deportation efforts on higher-level crimes was sacrificed when it appeared the agency would fall short of annual performance goals. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a branch of the Department of Homeland Security, wound up surpassing its goal by over 15,000 deportations.

Notes:

The American Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina used FOIA to obtain the email from ICE.
