Border arrests fall, deportations soar in Trump's first year

USA arrests of illegal immigrants soared in the first year of president Donald Trump's administration while border crossings have plummeted, the Department of Homeland Security announced Tuesday.

"Overall, removals are down because the border's under better control than it has been in 45 years", said Tom Homan, acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Assaults on agents by undocumented immigrants have almost doubled, to a six-year high of 847 from 584 last year, while border arrests have declined 25 percent from last year's 415,816.

ICE deported almost 226,000 people from the United States in the 2017 fiscal year by the end of September, which is 6 percent less than the previous year.

While those apprehension numbers are down, other numbers swelled.

Illegal immigration, particularly along the southwest border, "declined sharply" from January 21 to April, said CBP Acting Deputy Commissioner Ronald D. Vitiello during a press conference Tuesday.

The drop brings arrests along the US-Mexico border to the lowest level since 1971, according to immigration officials. Thomas Homan, ICE Deputy Director, said, according to Mic. That's nearly a 24 percent drop from a year ago.

However, non-criminal arrests have risen at a faster rate, which rose more than fifty percent compared to past year.

The focus has been on criminal aliens, it said, though immigration rights groups have accused them of rounding up longtime residents with families and jobs on minor infractions and sending them for deportation, and of rounding up immigrants in places where they should be safe.

According to ICE, non-criminal arrests are up because under the previous administration agents were mostly were prevented from making those arrests. Those arrests have sparked fear and anger in immigrant communities, where many worry the government is now targeting them.

Homan used the announcement to rail against so-called sanctuary cities - municipalities that in some way decline to cooperate with ICE - saying they entice more illegal immigration.

Pinto pushed back against Homan's narrative, saying that while fewer people may be dying during attempts to come to the US illegally, people are instead dying in their home countries.

Overall, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said, deportations over the last year dropped about 6 percent from the previous year - a number tied to the sharp decline in border crossings as well as a backlog in the immigration courts that process deportations. "We're still arresting almost 1,000 people a day coming across the border", he said.

In past years, removals were the primary measurement of how well ICE was doing, but over the past year, the agency has provided more context on arrest numbers as well.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who headed the president's opioid commission, said last week at a hearing with legislators in Baltimore that global drug trafficking problems regarding synthetic painkillers fentanyl and carfentanil need to be addressed before they become even worse in the U.S.
