ICE arrests 1Deportations of illegal aliens have hit an all-time low under the still-new Biden administration, the lowest number on record, and an immigration watchdog says no one should be surprised.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement reports that its agents deported fewer than 3,000 illegal aliens last month, a figure that is 20% lower than March numbers and the lowest total on record for any month.

At the current pace, fewer than 55,000 are expected to be deported from the United States during the current fiscal year, which would also be the lowest number on record.

Ira Mehlman of the Federation for American Immigration Reform tells One News Now it is not surprising news considering Joe Biden promised to block deportations during the first 100 days of his administration.

ICE protest“He was blocked from doing that by a court,” Mehlman points out, “but it doesn't mean he couldn't deport people as slowly as he possibly could.”

Under the Trump administration, nearly 255,000  illegal aliens were removed from the country annually. That figure predictably angered immigration advocates, who accused Donald Trump of racism and xenophobia, but those Leftists also witnessed the Obama administration deport record numbers, too.

According to Mehlman, it appears the Biden administration has found a way to deport illegal aliens at a record-making slow pace at the same time the United States has a record number of non-citizens illegally crossing our borders.
