ICE report unmasks staggering toll of Biden border crisis: illegal alien cases hit 6 million


By John Solomon

The Homeland Security Department agency entrusted with removing illegal immigrants is providing a staggering portrait of America’s border crisis, revealing the backlog of aliens inside the United States awaiting decisions has nearly doubled under President Joe Biden to more than 6 million while arrests of suspected terrorists and violent offenders have also exploded.

The year-end report from U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement released Friday showed nearly every measure of illegal immigration rose substantially in 2023, candidly admitting the southern border’s being overrun by millions of illegal crossers has taken a major toll on the agency.

“While ICE carefully prioritized its resources to meet these evolving mission needs and agency personnel continued to perform at a high standard, these increased demands have strained a workforce that has remained relatively static for the past decade,” the report declared.

The report offered warning signs for both liberals who support loosened immigration enforcement and conservatives who are worried the nation’s security is being jeopardized by Biden’s policies, which have lured millions into the country and overwhelmed cities like Chicago thousands of miles from the southern border.

Liberal activists are certain to be alarmed by the number of illegal aliens kept in detention: ICE reported the number exploded 40.1% from 26,299 last year to 36,845 at the end of the 2023 fiscal year that finished Sept. 30.

Meanwhile, the number of illegal aliens permitted into the country without being detained, usually with court dates far in the future, leapt 30.3 percent in 2023 to more than 6.2 million, nearly double the 3.26 million total in the last year of Donald Trump’s presidency. The report said the vast majority of that total came from the Southwest border where illegal crossings have surged to as many as 12,000 or more a day.

Administrative arrests rose sharply in 2023 to 170,590, with more than 43% of those apprehended having some sort of criminal conviction or pending charges. The figures confirm claims by Trump during his 2024 campaign that large numbers of illegal immigrants come with criminal baggage.

“[T]here were 290,178 charges and convictions for an average of four per individual,” the report noted. “These included many serious charges or convictions for offenses, such as 1,713 charges or convictions for homicide; 1,655 for kidnapping; 4,390 sexual assaults; 33,209 assaults; 3,097 robberies; 6,964 burglaries; and 7,520 weapons offenses.”

Expulsions of high-risk illegal immigrants by ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) also jumped by historic proportions, the report said. “In FY 2023, ERO removed 3,406 known or suspected gang members, an increase of 27.7% compared to FY 2022, and 139 known or suspected terrorists, a 148.2% increase compared to FY 2022,” it noted.

Overall, ICE completed 142,580 deportations in 2023, nearly doubling the prior year’s tally. But the number is still a small fraction of the nearly 2.5 million illegal crossers encountered at the southern border alone. The agency also removed only 212 unaccompanied minors in FY 23, despite 137,275 arriving at the southern border, the report showed.

Beyond the human toll endured by ICE agents and border patrol officers, the report also gave glimpses of the growing cost of the illegal immigration wave for taxpayers.

The report revealed the office paying for health care for detained and non-detained illegal aliens spent nearly $352 million in 2023.

The illegal alien invasion must be stopped. Shut down the border or shut down the government.

Just like President Trump said, “They are not sending their best”.

Democrats don’t care what comes over. They live in gated communities and have security. The negative results are for the low-life peasants.

The only reason there aren’t more in detention is because there is no more room. So, the illegals are just let go. Since these anti-American liars took power, the situation on our border has gotten worse, week over week, month over month, year over year. Surprisingly, even deploying the Kamala weapon on the “not a crisis” border crisis didn’t solve the problem! In fact, not even a “root cause” was discovered… obviously, because no “root causes” were resolved.

This whole Invasion is the plans of t he UN and CFR its all part of the plans by the Globalists the CFR are their Partners in Crime along with the DNC and George Soros and his Open Society group
