Biden Reduces Immigration's ICE Averaging Only One Arrest Every Two Months Despite Border Crisis

Even as Biden’s disastrous policies have brought a crisis to our immigration system with tens of thousands of illegals swamping our borders, he has also effectively destroyed the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency responsible for arresting criminal illegals and making our streets safe.

It is so bad that ICE has been “functionally abolished.” But it isn’t surprising since his radical, anti-American, left-wing party has been looking to destroy the agency for years.

“ICE deportations numbered an all-time low last month with 2,962 illegal immigrants returned to their home countries. Plummeting immigration enforcement is a result of new policies Biden implemented that restrict who qualifies for deportation and what actions ICE is authorized to take,” the Daily Wire reported

Per the Washington Post:

Under new Biden administration rules curtailing immigration enforcement, ICE carried out fewer than 3,000 deportations last month, the lowest level on record. The agency’s 6,000 officers currently average one arrest every two months.

ICE under President Biden is an agency on probation. The new administration has rejected calls from some Democrats to eliminate the agency entirely, but Biden has placed ICE deportation officers on a leash so tight that some say their work is being functionally abolished.

Biden’s cutback comes just as the crisis at the border has never been worse. Illegal immigration has surged to a 20-year-high since Biden took office.
