The headline here comes from a tweet by FOX News’ Adam Shaw summing up the scale of the crisis and complicity by the Biden administration.
As Bill Melugin noted, “DHS reports 153,941 migrant encounters in January, almost doubling Jan. ‘21 (78,414) and more than quadruple Jan. ‘20 (36,585). DHS also reports 62,573 migrants were released into U.S. just last month alone.”
That, as Adam points out, is more than the 55,590 deported in 2021.
Now let’s go back in time a few years.
A record high number of immigrants were ordered to be removed from the U.S. in 2018, a rise that many immigration advocates call the culmination of nearly two years of anti-immigration measures from the Trump administration. The president made immigration a central focus of the midterm election campaign.
Immigration officials ordered 287,741 new deportations in the fiscal year ending September 30, 2018, according to the report from Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC). TRAC obtained the data from the Department of Homeland Security through Freedom of Information Act requests.
It’s the highest number of new removal filings since the group began tracking deportation orders in 1992.
Despite the hysteria here, deportations were generally higher even under Obama. Under Biden, they’re all but vanished.
That’s down significantly from the 185,884 deportations in FY 2020 and the 267,258 removed in FY 2019, despite an enormous surge of migrants coming to the U.S., many of whom were processed and released into the U.S.
We have an illegals crisis because the Biden administration opened the door to illegal aliens and refuses to deport them. It’s actually worse at this than Obama was.
