Despite the additional hundreds of thousands of additional migrants attempting to cross the border into the United States, Immigration and Customs Enforcement made significantly less arrests and deportations in 2021 under the Biden administration than in previous years.

The report was released Friday by ICE for the 2021 fiscal year on Friday, showing a sharp decrease in the number of arrests and deportations of illegal immigrants from previous years. ICE agents arrested 74,082 non-citizens from October 2020 through September 2021, down from 103,603 arrests in the 2020 fiscal year and 143,099 arrests in the 2019 fiscal year.

Deportations were also lower. The agency deported 59,011 non-citizens in the 2021 fiscal year, compared with 185,884 deportations in the 2020 fiscal year and 267,258 deportations during the 2019 fiscal year.

“Based on the success of FY 2021, I have every confidence ICE will continue to maintain its mission focus and achieve operational successes, while ushering in fresh organizational changes in the coming fiscal year,” ICE acting director Tae Johnson said in the report.

National Review reports:

ICE issued temporary guidance on February 18, 2021, directing agents to prioritize arrests of people deemed “threats to national security, border security and public safety.”

The 2021 fiscal year report was released after Buzzfeed News reported that Department of Homeland Security officials are planning to warn Mexico of a potential rise in migrants attempting to enter the U.S. The Biden administration has struggled to deal with record-high numbers of migrants attempting to cross the southern border, with U.S. Border Patrol encountering over 2 million migrants at the border during President Biden’s first year in office.

 Homeland Security secretary Alejandro Mayorkas issued directives issued at the start of the new fiscal year could have further impact on ICE arrests and deportations. Mayorkas on September 30, 2021 directed ICE agents to prioritize arrests based on whether a migrant is a threat to public safety, saying “we will not work in conflict by spending resources seeking to remove those who do not pose a threat.”

Additionally, Mayorkas ordered a halt to work-site enforcement operations by ICE and U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

    Fewer arrests not less arrests. Frequent but unnecessary grammar mistake.

    It has gotten terrible in the border states in cities and towns. I no longer can just run to the store without being hawked by homeless foreigners begging for money. Southern Tucson every other corner has someone coming up to my car or person begging for money. I try to give food or water, but even that is met with no thankfulness. Biden and his open borders have made it scary for the elderly to be out and about. As I am older, handicap female, I am a constant target.

The first month of 2023 at the southern border is already looking bleak; just take a look at the numbers. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in El Paso, Texas have seized over 500 pounds of hard drugs in January alone.

Additionally, the agency apprehended 62 people they were able to identify as having outstanding arrest warrants. Among the criminals were sex offenders.

The devastating numbers are not surprising, given that in December, the El Paso mayor declared a sate of emergency “after record numbers of people were released onto city streets and sidewalks by the Biden administration” reports The Center Square.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott also “sent 400 National Guard troops to restore order and provide humanitarian assistance” adds the media outlet. Border Patrol data showed in December, 55,766 illegal foreign nationals were apprehended in the El Paso Sector.

There were also 32,632 known and recorded gotaways in December, meaning they were able to evade getting captured by law and immigration officials. law enforcement officers told The Center Square that despite the skyrocket high numbers, “these seizures and apprehensions represent a fraction of the amount of people and drugs being trafficked to the southern border between ports of entry.”
