ICE Arrests of Criminal Illegal Aliens in 2023 Drop by 41% Under Joe Biden Compared to Donald Trump:
The number of convicted criminal illegal aliens arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents dropped by 41 percent in Fiscal Year 2023 compared to the total arrested in Fiscal Year 2019 under then-President Donald Trump.
In Fiscal Year 2023, which represents the second full fiscal year in which Biden was president, ICE agents arrested nearly 171,000 illegal aliens, fewer than 32 percent of whom were convicted criminals.
For comparison, in Fiscal Year 2019 — which was Trump’s second full fiscal year as president — more than 64 percent of all of the 143,000 illegal aliens arrested by ICE agents were convicted criminals.
The data suggests that Biden’s ICE is arresting about 41 percent fewer convicted criminal illegal aliens compared to when Trump was in office. Also, those convicted of crimes make up a far smaller percentage of the total number of illegal aliens agents are arresting within a year.
Likewise, ICE agents arrested a little more than 20,000 illegal aliens with pending criminal charges against them in Fiscal Year 2023. In comparison, ICE agents, in Fiscal Year 2019, arrested more than 31,000 illegal aliens with pending criminal charges — indicating a 35-percent drop. --->READ MORE HERE

Biden’s Immigration Enforcement Policies Benefit Criminal Aliens
As countless illegal aliens continue to enter the United States, ignore court orders to return home, and overwhelmingly avoid arrest and removal by law enforcement officials at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), it is important to recall the Biden administration’s alleged rationale for its controversial immigration enforcement policies. In sum, Biden administration claims that their policies were designed to focus on criminal aliens to a greater degree than the policies under the Trump administration. It is now clear that the outcome the Biden administration promised has not been met, either because of gross incompetence of leadership or because the Biden administration has been lying to the American people and that their policies were aimed at gutting the nation’s immigration enforcement system, without any concern about the number of criminal aliens that would be released into our communities.
Official data from ICE reveals that the Biden administration has gutted immigration enforcement across the board and has arrested and removed fewer illegal aliens — with and without criminal records — than the Trump administration. Public safety and national security have been significantly undermined by the Biden administration’s reckless policies and the threats the administration has created will continue to be felt for many years to come.
Fiscal years 2018 and 2022 were the first complete years of data under the Trump and Biden administrations, respectively, because fiscal years 2017 and 2021 were made up of months that straddled two administrations (i.e., the first four months of FY17 were largely under the Obama administration, while the first four months of FY21 were largely under the Trump administration). The second years of data from the Trump and Biden administrations allow for a clear comparison in policy outcomes. (Assuming the reporting methods are not changed, we will compare FY 2023 data, when it is released, to 2019.)
The data show the Biden administration is responsible for the following when comparing Fiscal Year 2018 to Fiscal Year 2022:
66 percent decrease in arrests of criminal aliens
73 percent decrease in at-large arrests of criminal aliens
56 percent decrease in detainer requests issued on criminal aliens
74 percent decrease in deportations of criminal aliens
70 percent decrease in immigration-related criminal prosecutions
It should be noted that total annual arrests and removals are larger than the numbers below as this report looks only at data related to aliens with criminal histories and does not include data on aliens without known criminal histories. The complete FY18 and FY22 reports are available online. --->READ MORE HERE
