Deportations are Down Slightly under Trump
Via the Washington Post:
Overall, deportations are down by 1.2 percent, to 54,741 in January, February and March, compared to the same period last year...
Some say criticism of Trump’s policies seems politically charged, noting that President Barack Obama deported thousands of immigrants without criminal records. And arrests this year are lower than Obama’s first weeks in 2014, when agents arrested 29,238 immigrants, including 7,483 noncriminal ones.
The fact of the matter is that there is virtually no change in immigration court statistics since Trump took office. The biggest change is that Democrats and traditional media care about people getting deported again now that a Republican is in charge of the deportation apparatus.
