AND NOW FOR SOME GOOD NEWS: Arrests Of Illegal Immigrants Up More Than 40 Percent In 2017

Arrests of illegal immigrants skyrocketed during President Donald Trump’s first year in office, according to new data from Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
In 2017, “Our brave [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] officers arrested more than 100,000 criminal aliens who have committed tens of thousands of crimes,” Trump announced at the Conservative Political Action Conference Friday. The official numbers dropped the same day, revealing a marked increase over the final year of former President Barack Obama’s administration.
Authorities arrested 155,000 illegal immigrants in 2017, a 41 percent increase over the figure from the previous year, Immigration and Customs Enforcement revealed, according to CNN. As the Trump administration has eliminated the Obama-era policies that restricted deportation arrests to only those illegals who pose a threat to public safety, the agency is able to cast a wider net and detain foreign individuals who have not been convicted of a crime other than illegal entry into the country.
