The number of deportations of illegal immigrants fell sharply in 2021: Biden's soft approach affected

The number of deportations by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has fallen sharply in fiscal year 2021 despite the massive migration crisis at the southern border. With what it can be connected, the edition told Fox News.

The reduction in deportations coincided with numerous rules from the administration of US President Joe Biden that prohibited ICE agents from arresting certain groups of illegal immigrants.

According to preliminary FY2021 statistics on the ICE website, there were 2021 deportations in FY55, a small fraction of previous years' deportations.

This is significantly less than the 185 deportations in FY 884 and 2020 deportations in FY 267, despite the huge influx of immigrants coming to the US, many of whom were let through to the US.

While ICE has not officially released its fiscal year-end report, previous reports have suggested that arrests have dropped sharply as well. The Center for Immigration Research, which advocates lower levels of immigration overall, previously cited data for December that showed ICE removals lower than in 2019 and 2020.

The Biden administration took office in January 2021, the fourth month of the fiscal year, and immediately attempted to impose a 100-day moratorium on deportations. But it was blocked by a federal judge in response to a lawsuit in Texas.

Shortly thereafter, the Biden administration published new rules giving deportation priority to three categories of illegal immigrants: those who have recently crossed the border, those who have committed an aggravated crime, and those who pose a threat to national security. The administration said this allows agents to focus limited resources on the highest priority threats.

In addition, in the following months, ICE was prohibited from conducting workplace law enforcement operations and operations near certain areas, including courthouses.

In September, a memo told the agents that someone's illegal status should not in itself be grounds for arrest and deportation.

“We have fundamentally changed immigration controls within the country,” said Alejandro Mallorcas, head of the Department of Homeland Security, justifying the controversial decision. “For the first time, our policy explicitly states that the unlawful presence of a noncitizen in the United States will not in itself be grounds for deportation. This is a departure from the indiscriminate enforcement of the previous administration.”

Critics warn that ICE's leadership will result in criminals who don't meet the narrow standard of "aggravated felon" staying in the US rather than being deported. Dan Stein, president of the Federation of American Immigration Reform (FAIR), accused the Biden administration of effectively abolishing ICE.

“The new data confirms what we already knew: President Biden and Secretary of State Majorcas are not complying with our immigration laws; they deliberately and unilaterally repeal these laws against their oath. In doing so, they endanger the health, safety, and security of the American people,” Stein said in a statement.

ICE has confirmed it will not deport a Mexican illegal immigrant accused of carrying a swastika at a DC train station despite his criminal record and previous deportations. The department said it did not seek his deportation in part because of the capital's status as a sanctuary city.
