Despite the clear evidence, the left will undoubtedly still claim there is no border crisis. A new report shows that under President Biden deportations have dropped 90 percent.
The Daily Wire reports:
The report, based on information obtained by a Freedom of Information Act request, revealed the number of illegal immigrants deported from January 21 to July 9, 2021, was 90% lower than the same period in 2019, the last year prior to the pandemic.
“Immigration enforcement, as measured by the number of aliens removed from the country, has collapsed to the lowest level since the mid-1990s, according to ICE deportation records the Center has obtained. Under policies imposed by the Biden administration, removals dropped by 80 percent since last year’s low point during the pandemic lockdown, and by 90 percent since 2019, the last normal year for ICE operations,” Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, said in the report.
A special concern noted in the report also included the significant drop in the number of deportations of illegal immigrants convicted of serious crimes.
“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,” the report observed.
The report also noted Biden’s policies have “hobbled” immigration enforcement. For months, Biden has worked to take away power from border officers to thoroughly do their job which has resulted in more and more illegal crossings.
