Washington( CNN) The number of undocumented immigrant seizures rose by approximately one-third in the first weeks of the Trump administration, largely driven by an increase in the number of non-criminals arrested.

Immigrations and Customs Enforcement removal authorities built 21,362 seizures from January 20 to March 13 of this year, including 5,441 non-criminals, according to statistics provided to CNN and first requested by The Washington Post.

While the two arrested by ICE under President Donald Trump in the first seven weeks of his administration still lag behind the number arrested under former President obama in the same timeframe in 2014, the tempo of seizures this year do differentiate an escalation compared to the last two years of the Obama administration, when the Democrat utilized greater discretion toward undocumented immigrants.
