ICE is doing an amazing job keeping us safe under President Trump!
Breitbart is reporting:
The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency arrested more than 6,500 illegal aliens who have been convicted of homicide and sexual offenses in Fiscal Year 2018.
Between September 2017 and October 2018, ICE agents arrested a little more than 6,600 convicted murderers and convicted sex offenders who were in the United States illegally.
Of that total, 4,975 of the illegal aliens arrested were convicted sex offenders. The other 1,641 illegal aliens had been convicted of homicide. Another 1,913 illegal aliens that were arrested by ICE had pending sex offense charges against them, while 387 illegal aliens had pending murder charges against them.
As Breitbart News reported, ICE agents arrested 158,581 illegal aliens, surpassing the more than 140,000 illegal alien arrests made last year and the 110,100 illegal alien arrests in the last year of President Obama’s tenure.
The nearly 160,000 illegal alien arrests for this Fiscal Year mark the highest number of arrests by ICE since Fiscal Year 2014. Of the almost 160,000 illegal aliens, 66 percent were convicted criminals or those with pending criminal charges which translates to about 140,000 of those arrested.
The more than 105,000 convicted criminal illegal aliens arrested by ICE this year also include:
54,630 illegal aliens convicted of drunk driving
29,987 illegal aliens convicted of assault
9,834 illegal aliens convicted of burglary
4,423 illegal aliens convicted of robbery
3,740 illegal aliens convicted of sexual assault
1,294 illegal aliens convicted of kidnapping
The data comes as elected Democrats in Congress have supported a plan to abolish ICE, with incoming congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez previously accusing ICE agents of “violently” committing “human rights abuses” against illegal aliens.”
The ICE report continues (Enforcement and Removal Operations = ERO):
“As the agency primarily responsible for immigration enforcement efforts in the interior of the United States, ICE plays a critical role in fulfilling the requirements laid out in The President’s EO and DHS’ subsequent implementation memorandum. The statistics in this report illustrate ICE’s commitment to these policies and success in implementing them during FY2018.
ICE ERO’s FY2018 statistics demonstrate the agency’s strengthened interior enforcement measures and show significant success in identifying, arresting, and removing aliens who are in violation of U.S. law, particularly those who pose a public safety or national security threat. This was accomplished despite limited resources and an increasingly challenging operational environment.
In FY2018, ICE ERO conducted 158,581 overall administrative arrests, 15,111 more than in FY2017, while it conducted 256,085 removals – the highest level since FY2014, resulting in a more than 10 percent increase in overall arrests and removals. ICE continues to prioritize its limited resources on public safety threats and immigration violators, as reflected by the fact that, like in FY2017, 9 out of 10 ERO administrative arrests had either a criminal conviction(s), pending charge(s), were an ICE fugitive, or illegally reentered the country after previously being removed. These results clearly demonstrate that the increased enforcement productivity in FY2017 has maintained an upward trend, and that ICE’s efforts to restore integrity to our nation’s immigration system and enhance the safety and security of the United States have continued to yield positive results.”
