In fiscal year 2020 that ran from October of 2019 an d September of 2020,ICE deported more than 185,000 illegal aliens with over 4,200 who were gang members, mostly MS-13.
But don’t get used to it because a “President Harris” would not allow this to continue under her watch. What she would do, however. is increase the number of deportations by deporting Trump supporters.
About 64 percent of those deported, 118,949 illegal aliens, had criminal convictions or pending criminal charges.
Nearly 1,450 were family units and over 4,000 were unaccompanied children.
92% of those deported either had criminal convictions or had pending charges facing them.
Because of Covid-19, ICE deported less illegals in fiscal 2020 than they did in fiscal 2020 by about 30%.
Among those who were deported 4,276 were known or suspected gang members and 31 were known or suspected terrorists.
ICE’s air travel deportation operation sent a record number of flights to high-risk countries such as Jordan, Albania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Romania, Mongolia.
They also deported more than 350 high visibility targets such as Bosnian national Saudin Agani, convicted of aiding a terrorist organization.
Agani is a relative of Bosnian illegal alien Dzenan Camovic, who was indicted this year for ambushing two New York City Police Department (NYPD) officers in June while shouting the phrase “Allahu Akbar.” Justice Department officials have said that Camovic is a supporter of the Islamic State (ISIS).
As President Trump has surged immigration enforcement, President-Elect Joe Biden has promised to halt deportations of illegal aliens — including convicted criminals — and wind down various interior enforcement measures.
Deportations for illegal aliens is a huge cost-savings for American taxpayers, research has found. The taxpayer cost of the roughly 11 million to 22 million illegal aliens living across the U.S. totals nearly $750 billion over the course of a lifetime while each deportation costs just $10,900. This indicates that taxpayers would save about $622 billion over a lifetime if every illegal alien was deported.
President Trump was elected in 2016 primarily by promising a border wall and increased deportations, a promise that he most definitely has kept. In a poll taken just before the election a vast majority of voters want less illegal and legal immigration until Americans are working again.
