Agency arrests over 6.5k illegals convicted of homicide and sexual offenses in 2018
ICE arrested over 6,500 illegal aliens convicted of homicide and sexual offenses in the Fiscal Year 2018, according to the latest figures.
Between September 2017 and October 2018, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency arrested just over 6,600 convicted murderers and convicted sex offenders, including pedophiles, who were in the United States illegally.
4,975 of that arrest total were convicted sex offenders while the other 1,641 illegal aliens had been convicted of homicide.
On top of that total, 1,913 illegal aliens were arrested by ICE with pending sex offense charges against them, while another 387 illegal aliens had pending murder charges against them.
As Breitbart News reported, ICE agents arrested 158,581 illegal aliens, surpassing the more than 140,000 illegal alien arrests made last year.
110,100 illegal alien arrests were made in the last year of President Obama’s tenure.
According to Breitbart, the nearly 160,000 illegal alien arrests for this Fiscal Year mark the highest number of arrests by ICE since Fiscal Year 2014.
Of the almost 160,000 illegal aliens, 66 percent were convicted criminals or those with pending criminal charges which translates to about 140,000 of those arrested.
There are an estimated 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living across the US at the moment, putting a strain on ICE agents.
Despite the pressure, ICE managed to increase the deportation of illegal alien gang members by more than 85 percent compared to Fiscal Year 2016.
The more than 105,000 convicted criminal illegal aliens arrested by ICE this year also include:
- 54,630 illegal aliens convicted of drunk driving
- 29,987 illegal aliens convicted of assault
- 9,834 illegal aliens convicted of burglary
- 4,423 illegal aliens convicted of robbery
- 3,740 illegal aliens convicted of sexual assault
- 1,294 illegal aliens convicted of kidnapping
The data comes as elected Democrats in Congress have supported a plan to abolish ICE.
Incoming congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez previously accused ICE agents of “violently” committing “human rights abuses” against illegal aliens.
Most recently, Democrats like Sen. Kamala Harris (CA-D) and Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) have slammed the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) after a young migrant child died in U.S. custody of a fever, dehydration, exhaustion, and shock.
The child’s father said Border Patrol agents did everything they could to help and save his daughter.
