New Sentencing Commission report on immigration offenses

I just noticed that the US Sentencing Commission now has posted on its webpage a new report concerning immigration offenses.  This 32-page report, available here and entitled "Interim Staff Report on Immigration Reform and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines," looks more interesting than its title might suggest.  Here is its account of its coverage:

This report, organized by guideline, outlines certain issues arising out of immigration reform debate. Each immigration reform issue is analyzed in terms of how the issue is: 1) characterized through staff research, public comment, outreach and training, and information gathered from the Immigration Roundtable Discussion; 2) treated in the application and operation of the immigration guidelines; 3) informed by data available to the Commission, and 4) addressed in or corresponds to both legislative proposals or proposed amendments and issues for comment.  Additionally, this report concludes with a discussion of the particular issues facing the "border districts" and the impact of the operation of "fast track" or Early Disposition Programs on the sentencing of immigration offenses.
