Biden cuts illegal alien deportations by more than 90% in US cities
President Joe Biden’s administration has dramatically reduced the number of illegal aliens deported from cities and towns across the United States, some by more than 90%.
Twice last year, Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued so-called “sanctuary country” orders — currently being challenged in court — that ensured that most of the country’s 11-22 million illegal aliens countries were not eligible for immigration arrest and deportation. and the Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE).
A number of counties across the United States have a large population of illegal aliens and therefore have generally experienced significantly more evictions over the years compared to other counties.
Public records obtained by the Center for Immigration Studies, however, show that the Biden administration has reduced deportations of illegal aliens in all but two of the country’s largest counties, comparing the months of 2021 to the same period in 2019.
More importantly, Biden’s DHS reduced evictions by more than 90% in four of those 50 highest-volume counties: Gwinnett County, Georgia; Plymouth County, Massachusetts; Bergen County, New Jersey; and Kankakee County, Illinois. Massachusetts, New Jersey and Illinois are all sanctuary states.
While more than 520 illegal aliens were deported from Gwinnett County, Georgia, from January to September 2019, during those same months under Biden in 2021, only 53 illegal aliens were deported.
In nine of the 50 largest counties, the Biden administration reduced evictions in 2021 by more than 80% from the same period in 2019.
For example, in El Paso, Texas, more than 4,700 illegal aliens were deported in the first nine months of 2019, less than 670 illegal aliens were deported during the same period in 2021 in the Biden’s DHS executive.
As Breitbart News reported, federal records show that the number of illegal aliens arrested by local law enforcement and deported from the United States fell more than 70% under Bidden compared to 2019.
Declines in deportations of illegal criminal aliens fell across all local crime categories, records reveal, including a 57% drop in deportations of illegal aliens charged with murder, a 75% drop for those charged with abduction, a 91% drop for those charged with sex crimes, a 60% drop for those charged with sexual assault, and an 86% drop for those charged with burglary.
