An increasing number of people in the city who are in the country illegally, are being arrested and even deported.
That's according to a new report from City Comptroller Scott Stringer that says ICE enforcement is more intense here than in other major cities.
The report looked at deportations and arrests of undocumented immigrants for the first two years of the Trump Administration.
Numbers show that overall deportations are up 150 percent, while deportations of immigrants with no prior criminal conviction are up 265 percent.
Arrests by immigration and customs enforcement agents also jumped 88 percent.
Immigration advocates are now calling on the city provide greater protections, support, and legal representation for immigrant New Yorkers and their families.
"We've already had a couple of cases where one parent has been detained and the other is scrambling to deal with childcare. Children who are in schools applying for college are now stressed because they can't focus on the work, they can't focus on their applications. So it just becomes a whole cascade effect on the family. Tearing the family apart and undermining the potential these kids and families have," said Howard Shih of the Asian American Federation.
The report also found nearly half of all immigration court proceedings originate from Queens.
