As illegals continue to pour across the southern border at an unprecedented clip, newly released FOIA docs from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) reveal that deportations have decreased by a whopping 90% under the fraudulent Brandon regime.
The new data was revealed in a report that was released on Monday by The Center for Immigration Studies. According to the group’s policy director Jessica Vaughan, the number of illegals that are being successfully removed from the US has “collapsed to the LOWEST level” in almost 30 years.
“Under the policies imposed by the Brandon administration, removals dropped by 80 percent since last years LOW POINT during the pandecic lockdown, and by 90 percent since 2019 – the last normal year for ICE operations.
Granted, it is no surprise that deportations are down under Brandon, but the extent to which they are down is shocking. The massive drop has also affected the removal process for illegals who are convicted of additional offenses, such as murder, DUI, rape, and other serious crimes.
Now, an unbelievable 65 percent more of those individuals are being allowed to stay in the US thanks to Brandon’s policies, according to the report.
And those are just the ones they know about, countless more sneak across the border undetected.
“The number of aliens removed who had serious criminal convictions also has declined by over 50 percent from 2020 and by 65 percent since 2019.“
In all, the report shows that ICE will likely remove just 62,000 illegals in 2021, despite over 1.73 million crossing the border this year. The total is 3-4X less than the number deported in 2020 (186,000) and 2019 (267,000) when there was less than a third of the encounters.
Since coming into office, Brandon has worked tirelessly to dismantle Trump’s no-nonsense immigration policies which were crucial in securing the border. Not only has this administration encouraged anyone who can get to the border to come, but it has also stopped construction of the wall, implemented their own destructive open-border policies, and restricted ICE agents from enforcing deportations – all of which have caused the number of crossers at the border to be at all-time highs.
So, we currently have record-breaking numbers illegally coming in, and near-record lows going out. Not a great recipe for any country to maintain its sovereignty, especially considering the state of US elections right now.
Vaughan says this combination is a disaster in the making, adding that there will be some people who pay “a terrible price because of Brandon’s policies.”
From the report:
“[Brandon’s] refusal to enforce immigration laws is one of the most clueless and egregious acts of neglegince in modern government history.
The rationalizations to avoid deporting criminal aliens are mind-boggling — homicide convictions are OK if they took place years ago, sex offense convictions are OK if the perpetrator has a family here, drug trafficking is OK if it was pleaded down to possession – don’t look in any databases to find out if vicious punks are gang members.
It’s insulting to legal immigrants, it will be costly for communities, and there will be people who pay a terrible price because of Brandon’s policies.”
Brandon’s officials claim the changes were instituted “to protect noncitizens who don’t qualify to stay” and to “make ICE more efficient,” but the only effect has been to make it easier for foreigners to break the law and stay here illegally. Vaughan says Brandon has bowed to the radical anti-borders left so completely – blocking ICE and others from doing their jobs – that he has almost completely “abolished interior immigration enforcement” in the US altogether.
“Officials claim that the new policies make ICE more efficient, but in fact, the result is simply less enforcement, and even enforcement against criminals, who should be the top priority. They have accomplished the near abolition of interior immigration enforcement by miring officers in red tape or taking them off the job.
Not only is this approach a waste of government resources, it greatly undermines the integrity of our legal immigration system and ends up causing public safety problems to boot.”
Brandon’s egregious open-border policies are a slap in the face to legal immigrants and US citizens alike. His short time in office has already decimated border security to near all-time lows – If it’s a crisis now, where will we be if he is allowed to continue facilitating this invasion for another 3 years?
Not a pleasant thought.
