The Biden administration’s border policies led the United States to become what is called a true “sanctuary country,” preventing the deportation of about 9 out of 10 illegal aliens who should have been deported. This, in addition to allowing those nine who should have been deported to enter the country, causes the border system to collapse by encouraging thousands of Latino migrants to try to enter the country.
According to data reported by the Washington Post, just 2,962 illegal aliens were deported in April by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents, the first time since records have been kept that the monthly deportation total reflects less than 3,000.
In March, Biden had already driven deportations down to an all-time low with only 3,716 illegal aliens deported. At the current rate, fewer than 55,000 illegal aliens are expected to be deported this fiscal year, the lowest annual number on record.
While no more than 60,000 illegal aliens are expected to be deported this year, during the Trump era, the annual average exceeded 240,000.
These numbers are of concern mainly from two perspectives. On the one hand, 90% of immigrants not deported remain in the country, which implies a high cost for taxpayers and competing unfairly in the labor field by accepting less income and worse conditions given their illegal status.
But it is also worrying, because that number works as the main incentive for thousands and thousands of Latin American citizens to be motivated every day to walk the difficult path to reach the border with the United States and try to enter in any way and at any price, knowing that the chances of entering and staying are very high.
Last week, as part of a court-ordered investigation related to a lawsuit Arizona and Montana filed against DHS, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s office announced that they acquired internal documents and emails from the federal government that “convey a shocking disregard for the safety and security of American communities by the Biden Administration.”
Brnovich further added that “the Biden Administration and its radical allies are effectively abolishing ICE through administrative acts,” Breitbart reported.
His office said states are “challenging DHS interim guidance that allegedly stops nearly all deportations outside of three narrow categories.”
In addition, the disclosed data confirms that the new immigration policies have allowed thousands of criminal illegal aliens to be released into U.S. communities who otherwise would have been deported. These illegal aliens include sex offenders, drug traffickers, and murderers.
