Since Joe Biden became the president, the number of illegal immigrants being deported has significantly decreased.
Last year, Biden issued two executive orders aimed at protecting immigrants from deportation. These orders were known as "sanctuary country" policies. They prevented the deportation of most of the country's 11 to 22 million illegal immigrants.
Due to the large number of illegal immigrants in certain counties in the U.S., they have been the subject of more deportations than other areas.
According to public records released by the Center for Immigration studies, the number of deportations carried out by the Biden administration decreased significantly in all but two counties during the period of 2021 to 2019.
The number of deportations was significantly decreased in four of the 50 counties that are considered to be the most significant sources of illegal immigrants. These include Georgia's Gwinnett County, Massachusetts' Plymouth County, New Jersey's Bergen County, and Illinois' Kankakee County.
In Georgia's Gwinnett County, over 500 illegal immigrants were deported during the period of January to September 2019. During the same period in 2021, only 53 individuals were deported.
In counties with high volume of illegal immigrants, the number of deportations decreased significantly from 2019 to 2021.
In El Paso, Texas, more than 4,400 illegal immigrants were deported during the first nine months of 2019. During the same period in 2021, less than 670 individuals were taken away.
According to data released by the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the number of illegal immigrants apprehended by local law enforcers and deported from the country has significantly decreased in Bidden compared to 2019.
The data revealed that the number of deportations for criminal aliens has significantly decreased in Bidden. Among the various crime categories that have seen a drop in numbers of arrests are murder, kidnapping, sexual assault, and burglary.
