ICE: 90% Of All Illegal Aliens Arrested Have Criminal Records Or Pending Charges

Some 90% of all illegal aliens arrested last year had criminal convictions on their records or criminal charges pending against them, according to a new analysis of data from Immigration and Customs Enforcement done by the Pew Research Center.
"Immigrants with past criminal convictions accounted for 74% of all arrests made by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents in fiscal 2017, according to data from the agency. The remainder were classified as 'non-criminal' arrestees, including 16% with pending criminal charges and 11% with no known criminal convictions or charges," Pew said.
So, President Trump is doing just what he said he'd do: arrest illegal aliens with criminal records.
In fact, it was former President Barack Obama who didn't do that. "The profile of ICE arrestees has changed considerably in the past eight years: In fiscal 2009, the earliest year with comparable data, immigrants without past criminal convictions accounted for the majority (61%) of those arrested by the agency," Pew wrote.
