According to a new analysis, this is the lowest amount of illegal immigration deported from US soil in more than a quarter-century. Since last year’s low point during the COVID-19 epidemic, ICE deportation data reveal that removals have decreased by a stunning 80% and by 90% since 2019, “the last regular year for ICE operations,” respectively. According to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIS), more than half of those deported had major criminal records in 2020. That number has decreased by 65% since that year.
According to the report, President Joe Biden’s immigration policies are to blame for the dramatic decline. Texas sued the Biden administration, and a federal court overturned a February ban on deportations. Between January 21 and July 9, 2021, ICE deported 18,713 illegal immigrants. Illegal aliens were removed from the United States by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in 2019. That’s about ten times as many deletions as the present government has carried out.
There has been a significant decline in the number of arrests made by ICE Field Offices in areas of the nation where ICE primarily conducts interior arrests. In the first five months of Joe Biden’s presidency, only 32 illegal immigrants were deported from Baltimore, Maryland. Although a larger percentage of deported immigrants were found guilty of significant offenses, the poll also showed fewer severe criminal aliens were deported during the Biden administration. In 2021, ICE removed just 6,000 dangerous illegal aliens under Biden, compared to nearly 175,000 under Trump. There is less enforcement, especially against criminals, according to officials who claim that these new methods make ICE more efficient. Overburdened bureaucrats and downsized police forces have all but eliminated internal immigration enforcement.
According to CIS policy director Jessica M. Vaughan, “this method not only wastes government money but affects the integrity of our legal immigration system, resulting in public safety risks.” The president’s ideas are “demeaning to legal immigrants, expensive to communities and unfair to some,” she said. “Biden’s proposals are demeaning to legal immigrants, expensive to communities, and unjust to others,” she said. As a non-partisan, non-profit research group, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) advocates a “pro-immigrant, low immigration vision” that strives to reduce the number of immigrants entering the United States while providing a warm welcome for those who are allowed to enter.
