Biden’s DHS Hides Data On Arrests, Deportations of Criminal Illegal Aliens

President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is hiding data on the deportations and arrests of illegal aliens in the United States during his first year in office.

Biden’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released its annual report for fiscal year (FY) 2021 this week—months later than previous administrations. According to the report, Biden has dramatically reduced interior immigration enforcement. Since FY 2019, deportations were slashed by 78 percent and arrests of illegal aliens dropped by nearly 50 percent.

From October 2020 to September 2021, there were just slightly more than 74,000 illegal aliens arrested. Biden’s arrest count is even lower because the bulk of them were arrested while Donald Trump was still president. The deportation of illegal aliens was also reduced to less than 60,000.

The report does not include a comprehensive list of datasets, such as the number of illegal aliens who were issued ICE detainers during FY 2021. This number is significant because it shows the effects of Biden’s “sanctuary countries” orders–through which most illegal aliens are protected from arrest and deportation–on ICE agents, preventing them from capturing illegal aliens from local law-enforcement custody once they are convicted.

Breitbart News asked ICE officials whether they would publish the missing data in the future. The agency replied with a generic statement that read, “We will get back to you when we have more information.”

Jon Feere, a former ICE official, noted the missing data, which includes: convictions and criminal charges against illegal aliens; monthly totals of deportation and arrests; data on deportation categorized by country; daily detainee population; number of illegal aliens that ICE has not taken into custody; arresting agency categorized deportations; all data related to unaccompanied alien children (UACs) family units and UACs; data on arrest and deportation categorized according to pending criminal charges.

Feere, a Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) researcher, wrote that “the natural conclusion is that this lack of transparency shows that the Biden administration’s extremely limiting immigration enforcement guidance have been disastrous for public security and that it does not want to defend them—in [the] court of public opinion as well as in actual courtrooms where their policies are currently under serious judicial scrutiny.”

In terms of visuals and comparisons with other fiscal years, the report was not as detailed as previous reports. The Trump report provided comparisons between each dataset and the previous two fiscal years via charts. However, the Biden report does not provide such visuals.

On the other hand, the agency’s diversity programs were praised. The report, for example, noted that ICE employees had undergone “unconscious bias,” cultural sensitivity, and “implicit bias” training.
