Report: Arrests, deportations by ICE plummet under Biden admin

When it comes to enforcing our nation’s immigration laws, President Joe Biden seems to have all but thrown in the towel.

In an editorial for the Washington Examiner, columnist Paul Bedard revealed that the number of undocumented migrants held in custody on so-called “detainers” from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has plummeted as much as 75% under the Biden administration.

Citing “law enforcement and immigration officials” including Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich (R), Bedard said in his piece for the Examiner that with Biden at the helm, “thousands of criminal illegal immigrants who would have been targeted for deportation are now being set free in cities around the nation.”

Of the apparent drop in enforcement actions at the border, Brnovich told Bedard: “Basically, it shows you that they are getting orders from the Biden administration not to go out and arrest people and deport them.”

“Their hands are tied”

Fox News reports that border officials have allowed more than 61,000 migrants to enter the country since Biden was inaugurated back in late January; by comparison, less than four dozen migrants were released into the U.S. by border agents between October and December 2020, Fox said.

Brnovich told Bedard that ICE agents feel “their hands are tied behind their backs.”

“It’s clear from the emails and at least this first deposition that ICE officials are frustrated, but basically their hands are tied behind their backs. They are being forced to fight a war under rules of engagement that are unfair to law enforcement,” the Arizona attorney general said.

“As a result of that, literally we know that there are criminals that are not being deported,” the AG added, according to Bedard. “And it’s going to end up, I think, creating a huge public safety issue.”

“We don’t just throw money out there”

It all comes as Biden continues to face criticism from even his own party on his handling of the recent surge in migration to the U.S., largely from Central America. In comments to reporters on Wednesday, U.S. Rep. Vicente Gonzalez (D-TX) suggested funds allocated by the federal government to help manage the crisis may not be getting “to the places that they need to.”

“Hundreds of millions of dollars have been given to the NGOs [non-governmental organizations],” Gonzalez said, according to Fox. “We need to assure that when we make these investments that they’re monitored to assure that they have the results — and we don’t just throw money out there and hope it resolves itself.”

But the Biden administration maintains that it’s doing everything it can to mitigate the escalating situation at the border, which even Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has admitted is “undoubtedly difficult.”

“We are working around the clock to manage it, and it will take time,” Mayorkas claimed last month, according to The New York Times.
