Immigration-related arrests soared to accounting for 50 percent of all federal busts in 2014, the Pew Research Center said in a new report.

That's a spike of 22 percent from just a decade earlier.

Of the 165,000 federal arrests in 2014, the most recent year the stats are available, all other crimes slightly decreased from 2004:

  • Drug arrests: Decreased from 23 percent of arrests to 14 percent.
  • Probation/Parole infractions: 3-point drop over the 10-year span.
  • Property crimes: 3-point drop.
  • Weapons: Down from 7 percent to 4 percent.

The Department of Homeland Security accounted for 59 percent of the arrests in 2014, up 22 percent from 2004, directly mirroring the spike in those types of offenses, the Pew found.

Further, Customs and Border protection — an agency within the DHS — made more arrests in 2014 (65,000) than all of the federal agencies in the Department of Justice combined (58,000), the Pew reported.
