Mar. 11, 2022 – Immigration Arrests Drop under Biden Administration

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) made more than 74,000 administrative immigration arrests in fiscal year 2021, down from over 100,000 yearly under the Trump administration.

Deportations also dropped from 185,884 in 2020 to about 59,000 in 2021.

The decreases are likely due in part to policy changes under the Biden administration that focused immigration enforcement efforts on national security, public safety and border security risks.
