Arrests Of Illegal Aliens Up 38% Under Trump

Arrests Of Illegal Aliens Up 38% Under Trump

This is excellent news. However, this does not answer the question of how many have actually been deported

(Fox News) Making good on a promise to overturn Obama-era immigration policies, Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrests increased 38 percent during the first three months of the Trump administration.

”These statistics reflect President Trump’s commitment to enforce our immigration laws fairly and across the board,” said ICE Acting Director Thomas Homan.

The increase reflects arrests made not at the border, but in U.S. cities, so called ‘interior enforcement,” something critics say almost disappeared in the last year of the Obama Administration.

The stats break down as

  • ICE has arrested more than 41,000 individuals who are either known or suspected of being in the country illegally. This reflects an increase of 37.6 percent over the same period in 2016.
  • Nearly 75 percent of those arrested during this period in 2017 are convicted criminals, with offenses ranging from homicide and assault to sexual abuse and drug-related charges.
  • The arrest of aliens at-large in the community increased by more than 50 percent.
  • The arrest of convicted illegal immigrants climbed nearly 20 percent
  • The arrest of non-criminal illegal immigrants rose 150 percent, to 10,800 since the beginning of the year compared to 4,200 in the same period in 2016.

That last one will send supporters of those who are unlawfully present into Level 10 Moonbattery, as they are super happy that people are breaking our federal immigration laws, and want to turn those people into Democratic Party voters.

This all goes hand in hand with a big drop in border crossings. The media will tend to trot out stories about illegal aliens living in fear to go with the ones on the arrests, which helps reduce the number who think it’s a great idea to illegally enter the United States.
