DHS Data: Biden’s ‘Sanctuary Country’ Orders Cut Deportations of Criminal Illegal Aliens

By John Binder | Breitbart New

President Joe Biden’s so-called “sanctuary country” orders are directly responsible for a massive drop in deportations of illegal aliens, newly released federal data shows.

In February 2021, Biden implemented a series of orders protecting most of the nation’s 11 to 22 million illegal aliens from arrest and deportation. The most expansive is Biden’s so-called “sanctuary country” orders that prevent Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents from arresting and deporting most illegal aliens — even those with criminal convictions.

The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) obtained ICE data through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, showing Biden’s orders slashed deportations of illegal aliens.
