Illegal Alien Detentions Up, Deportations Down

Trump needs to put aside a lot of his social media stuff and spend the time getting people in place

(USA Today)  Arrests of undocumented immigrants by federal agents increased in June, but deportations fell to their lowest point this year as the nation’s court system sees bigger backlogs, according to data released Monday by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

ICE agents arrested 13,914 people last month, following a trend since President Trump took office in January and his campaign promise to crack down on illegal immigration.

In the final three months of the Obama administration, ICE averaged 9,134 arrests per month. That number has steadily increased under Trump, with the agency averaging 13,085 each month from February through June.

The Trump administration has not turned those arrests into more deportations, however, as those numbers keep falling.

In the final three months of the Obama administration, the agency averaged 22,705 deportations per month. That number has consistently fallen under Trump, with the agency averaging 16,895 from February through June, reaching its lowest point in June.

One has to wonder if a lot of judges are slow-walking cases.
