ICE Data Reveal Sharp Drop in Deportations Under Biden

The Biden administration removed almost 80% fewer illegal immigrants in fiscal year 2021 than former President Donald Trump did in 2019, the last full year before coronavirus restrictions, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) data, Just The News reported on Sunday.

ICE removed fewer than 60,000 illegal immigrants in fiscal year 2021, a period that covers Oct. 1, 2020 to Sept. 30, 2021, part of which includes the last months of the Trump administration. The ICE data was obtained through a Freedom of Information Act requested by the Center for Immigration Studies.

In comparison, more than 265,000 illegal migrants were deported in 2019. In 2020, the first year of pandemic restrictions, more than 185,000 illegal immigrants were deported.
