In its year-end report, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency said they apprehended more than 185,000 illegal aliens in 2020, including 4,000 gang members deported. This includes more than 4,2000 listed gang members. ICE operations experienced a slowdown in 2020, mainly due to the coronavirus pandemic.

2020 ICE Annual Report

From October 1, 2019, until September 30, 2020, ICE agents deported 185,884 illegal aliens from the US. 64% of these deported have criminal convictions or are currently charged with a crime.  This includes 4,276 known or suspected gang members. Furthermore, this includes 675 members of the ultra-violent criminal gang MS-13. Also, 31 deportees consist of well-known or suspected terrorists.

ICE’s detention centers held an average of 33,724 people at any given time in 2020. Meanwhile, the number of people jailed this week is much lower at 15,993. Also, ICE managed to increase total deportations via air travel by 160%. The agency deported more than 350 high-profile illegal immigrants to their home countries. ICE utilized  76 charters in high-risk countries such as Albania, Mongolia, and Turkey.

Coronavirus Restrictions

Critics said the agency did not enact coronavirus safety measures in detention centers. The agency did not do enough to prevent virus transmission among inmates. Then, critics also said that asylum seekers weren’t given a fair shake. The rapid process of deporting undesirables removes their chances of getting properly heard.

The ongoing coronavirus severely hampered the operations of field personnel. This year’s arrests and deportations fell sharply due to coronavirus. Air travel restrictions and policies limited the agency’s ability to travel.  In addition, ICE limited arrests beginning in spring. They will limit operations and focus on apprehending high-risk immigrants with criminal convictions. As a result, detentions were 33% lower than the previous year. Meanwhile, deportations dropped around 30% compared to last year. They were also 27% compared to the year before. The previous low during the Trump Administration totaled 226,000 in 2017. Executive Associate Director Henry Lucero said that the agency “did scale down enforcement. We didn’t stop it. We just prioritized those with a criminal element and those subject to mandatory detention that were potentially at large.”

New Administration, New Policies

Under President Trump, immigration enforced many tough measures and proposed controversial ones. Despite outrage from groups, ICE managed to reduce the number of illegal aliens in the US and had gang members deported. According to Breitbart, deporting illegal aliens at an average cost of $10,900 saves money in the long run. Compare that to the estimated $750 billion attending to 11 to 22 million illegals all over the country. By deporting illegals, the country can save over $622 billion over a lifetime.

Meanwhile, incoming President Joe Biden committed a 100-day moratorium on deportations. This includes even those with established criminal backgrounds. Also, he promised to roll back or scale down the man of the current administration’s policies. Staffers led by Biden’s nominee  Alejandro Mayorkas will come up with new or updated guidelines in arrests, removals, and deportation proceedings. Immigration advocates claim that the current low detainees and pandemic-related arrest limits prove that detention is unnecessary. They claim that there is no evidence linking fewer ICE detainees to less safe communities in the vicinity.

Do you approve of the planned 100-day freeze on deportations once Biden assumes office?

  • Ross E. Ford says:

    Keep the heavy hand on stopping immigration because the more we let in the country the more taxes are going to be imposed on us. It would be different if the illegals would apply for citizenship and become an American citizen but most do not do that. Its not just the southern borders that need closed its all of our ports need heavy security to stop the influx of foreigners coming into this country illegally. STOP IMMIGRATION AND ENFORCE APPLYING FOR CITIZENSHIP.

  • Anonymous says:

  • Kit says:

    There are hundres of thousands of individuals walking to our southern borders now. If allowed in (under Biden), the subsequent result would be devastating. Not just economially, but physically threatening and could potentially cause massive food shortages, the like we have not seen since the Great Depression. We already have illegals voting and receiving many benefits not afforded to natural citizens and their families who also need help. I understand why people would leave the homelands that do not afford them the freedoms and benefits that we have enjoyed. I do NOT understand how they are allowed to use those freedoms to belittle and perpetrate crimes against our population.

  • David says:

    Why is this even a question? This is another ridiculous gesture. If your trying to piss people off, your doing it. Keep it up and some people will become famous for their actions towards the people that even suggest these idiotic ideas. I guess if you’ve embezzled so much money from the people of America that you feel your above the law and this kind of crap doesn’t matter….maybe you’ll become the hunted….I can only hope

  • Tom Oldfather says:

    About time….hope Biden does the same…. but doubt it!!!

  • Anonymous says:

    Deport every illegal alien and close the borders and start taking care of Americans with our taxpayer money. Wake up people were already a minority country United States. Isn’t the government supposed to help us Americans that paid Social Security for 40 years.

  • John Johnson says:

    Illegal is illegal! Deport all illegals and do not permit any more to reside in the United States. There are lawful ways to enter this country — Use them or no admittance!

  • Wade Unger says:

    Why have laws if your not going to enforce them? Remember history, no empire or civilization has survived with an open borders policy! Best example the Roman Empire.

  • Nancy P. says:

    AGREE WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP PROPOSAL. BETTER CONTROL OF ALLOWING IMMIGRANTS INTO THIS COUNTRY. TOO MANY ARE GETTING IN HERE WITHOUT APPROVAL. ANY IMMIGRANT THAT IS CAUGHT ILLEGAL BE DEPORTED BACK WHERE CAME FROM. ONES THAT CAUSE A CRIME, ARRESTED AND THEN DEPORTED BACK TO THEIR COUNTRY. AND ONES THAT APPLY LEGALLY HAVE TO REMAIN IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY WAITING FOR APPROVAL. AND DISCONTINUE THE FREE HAND OUTS FROM OUR GOVERNMENT. HAVE TO QUALIFY TO OBTAIN A JOB WITH EXPERIENCE, EDUCATION, HAD WORKED PREVIOUSLY, A TRADE, WANT TO OPEN A BUSINESS , NO CRIMINAL BACKGROUND OR THE US WILL NOT ACCEPT YOUR APPLICATION. THIS WILL WEED OUT THE IMMIGRANTS WE DON’T NEED HERE.

  • Bill says:

    Biden and his “administration” are idiots

  • masterredfox says:

    Someone’s pocket is getting lined real full to even consider going softer on illegal immigration. It is as if they are purposely encouraging it, to lower standards in the USA. Maybe we should be just sending our USA criminals to the countries sending us their criminals as a fair tradeoff. As far as Joe Biden being the return to the normal guy–that means that all those under table agreements will be continuing while USA citizens lose out.

  • jo says:

    Kick them all out along with that idiot Biden

  • Nancy P. says:

    NO, DO NOT AGREE WITH BIDENS PROPOSAL. TRUMPS WAY IS THE ONLY WAY TO KEEP CONTROL OF ALL IMMIGRANTS. HAVE TO STOP BIDEN FROM RUINING EVERYTHING WE HAVE GAINED. BIDEN’s NOMINEE TO TAKE OVER, ALEJANDFO MAYORKAS SAYS IT ALL OF WHAT IS GOING TO CHANGE THINGS AND HOW LENIENT WE WILL BECOME ON IMMIGRANTS. NO TELL ME THIS IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. THIS COUNTRY IS IN BAD ENOUGH SHAPE . DON’t NEED THIS ADDED TO ALL OUR OTHER PROBLEMS.

  • DENIS C FLAHERTY says:

    KEEP YHE FREE-LOADERS OUT-PERIOD! WE CAN’T EVEN TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN & YET WE GIVE THEM INCOME ASSISTANCE, MEDICAL AND MORE BENEFITS THAN OUR OWN CITIZENS. I’M SICK & TIRED OF GIVING SHIT TO OTHER COUNTRIES!

  • Anonymous says:

    Fuck all you non NATIVE AMERICANS this was our LAND of the FREE and HOME to the BRAVE before all you niggers and wiggers came and corrupt my country

  • CJ says:

    Just like every country in the world, if you are in the U.S. illegally, you must be deported & apply to legally return. No freebies, no assistance of any kind. Our tax dollars should only be used for legal citizens of the US. Let other countries step up & help. I’m tired of paying for criminals & freeloaders. Biden the pedofile & heels up Harris screwed everyone to get where they are at through corrupt voting. Why not have every vote reviewed for accuracy & just be honest?! Whoever wins in a 100% recount wins, but not until all the voter fraud is 100% resolved. The US is turning into a communist country very quickly. How did Omar a refugee get all her money? She needs to go back to her country of origin, period. Then Cotez the bar fly? Geez, Congress literally will let anybody in! Democrats are all a bunch of corrupt pieces of crap. Obama gave money to terrorists. When are you people going to wake up to what’s going on?! Deport all illegals & keep building the wall, care & protect our own LEGAL citizens FIRST!

    Deport Biden et al

  • Lou Bridgewater says:

    Illegal means it against the law . That says it all!

  • CHARLIE says:

    Until the COVID virus is completely under control—eradicated—there should be a moratorium on all immigration of any kind. And anyone who enters our country illegally should OF COURSE BE DEPORTED, and NEVER be allowed any kind of entry in the future–and certainly no citizenship, ever. I was 3 decades in the military, many times in harm’s way. It worries me that our body politic was inept enough to elect Biden instead of Trump—Trump who was in the process of doing everything that our country needed. One of Thomas Jefferson’s main concerns was the existence of ignorant voters. He felt that they would vote-away our freedoms.

  • Native0ne says:

    Have you been asleep? People are dying by the thousand and he’s playing golf? He never commented on the Nashville bombing, what was he going to do thaT this country needs? Thomas Jefferson was right ignorant voters elect ignorant presidents. His days are numbered because he can’t stop talking shit. Don’t you realize he split this country up into black and white and democrats and Republicans. I consider myself an American! You aren’t better than me and I’m not better than you. Watch and see his immature character when the Electoral College submits their vote. He’s calling on supporters to come and protest. Why? Because he thinks he’s better than everybody and is a poor loser. Nothing is rigged. But these idiots drinking his coolaid believe his crap. When people went to the polls chanting stop the vote? To do that would have dire consequences. Also, I was in the Army for 11 years. I was deployed to Iraq with logistics and Recon. Vehicles with no armor and creating the FOB. Tour was cut short due to an IED and still have shrapnel in my neck and back. And was shot in the leg. The 2 kids in the passenger side died and they became fragments that needed to be taken out of my back and shoulder. One piece at a time. Harms way was every second over there. This out going prez will sign a non-disclosure agreement and end up in a rant talking about national security which he’ll regret. I mean we are getting screwed in the ass from Russian hackers who have hacked into very critical systems and trumps threw out that it was China. A lie. But had no plan to retaliate. WtF. So what he is doing is burning down the house on his way out. We need structure and a intelligent way to get out of this mess. Not just say its under control. Just like this virus. Couldn’t even take charge. Only to blame China and no plan to protect the citizens of the great country. Every 1 in a Thousand people in the US dies from this virus that will just go away. You may support him but when things go bad, your ass will be thrown under the bus. And that’s ok with you?

  • Native0ne says:

    For one thing I question your heritage. We don’t talk like that about anyone. Especially filled with racist remarks. We’ve dignity and morals. So don’t rant under the falsehood of being Native American and saying this was your country. You have no clue how immature and uneducated you are. Baamaapii.

  • Preston Lester says:

    I , for one, suggest that Biden and the rest of the stupid democrats all move to Mexico , none of them belong in the good ole USA , we dont need them and that way they could get an education that they sorely need. Pres Lester

  • Susan Armour says:

    This world is going to hell in a handbasket as they say. Where are people’s heads at. Just because they did not like Trump for whatever reason, there was no reason to vote for Communism in the United State with Biden and his idiot sidekick Harris. Lets face it, Biden will not hold up for 4 years, and we will be in terrible shape when we get Harris as our President. That was Biden’s plan. He said many months ago, that he wanted a woman VP. He did not say somebody with enough knowledge and stamina to run a country. I am so fed up, and that is putting it mildly. Dear Lord Please Help Our Country, and destroy the wicked. Lets all join in prayer during this horrible catastrophe
