ICE Deportations Dropped Drastically Due to Biden’s Orders

'This has allowed ICE to focus on the quality of enforcement actions ... rather than the simple quantity of arrests and removals...'

Immigration and Customs Enforcement deportations fell drastically in April due to President Joe Biden‘s executive actions.

ICE deported just 2,962 immigrants in April, according to a Washington Post report.

April’s deportation numbers mark a 20% fall from March, despite the massive immigration surge that has led to an uncontrolled border crisis.

Biden tagged Vice President Kamala Harris to handle the crisis, but she has so far refused to address the issue, ultimately agreeing to travel to Guatemala and Mexico but not the southern US border.

Making matters worse, Biden’s recent pick for ICE director, Ed Gonzalez, has a long history of opposing the agency that he may soon oversee.

Gonzalez—the former sheriff of Harris County, Texas, which encompasses Houston—has vocally expressed his support of “sanctuary cities” and relaxed enforcement of federal immigration law.

The new administration’s ICE department has justified the lack of law enforcement by citing the “quality” of its deportees.

“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has concentrated its limited law enforcement resources on threats to national security, border security, and public safety,” an ICE spokesperson said. “This has allowed ICE to focus on the quality of enforcement actions and how they further the security and safety of our communities rather than the simple quantity of arrests and removals.”

The Biden administration has pursued its selective law-enforcement policy since February.

The substantial drop in deportations indicates the effectiveness of Biden’s new policy, which requires that ICE agents get approval from higher ups before deporting non violent criminal illegal immigrants.

In the month of March, more than 172,000 immigrants arrived at the southern border.

The Biden administration has refused to take substantial action so far.

Further, the president has actually reduced border law enforcement and rolled back Trump-era policies that provided more security.

Meanwhile, Biden has blamed former president Donald Trump for not securing adequate immigrant housing at the border, which was not necessary under the Trump administration due to the use of stronger deterrents such as the “Remain in Mexico” policy.

Unlike Biden who successfully covered up the overcrowding and rampant abuse in his facilities, Trump was savaged by leftist media and partisan ideologues who claimed his reliance on the Obama-era facilities was tantamount to Nazi-era concentration camps.

The Biden administration also has sought to deflect from its policy failures by citing climate change as a cause of increased immigration.
