ICE, CBP Remove Thousands of Murderers, Dope Dealers, and Sex Fiends in Fiscal 2018

ICE abolished immigrationThe nation’s immigration police are working day and night to detain and deport the thousands of illegal-alien criminals who cross our borders.

But the numbers that Immigration and Customs Enforcement released in its final report on removals during fiscal 2018 show that their assiduous effort is a akin to sweeping back the tide.

It’s a never-ending job. The totals in the report are staggering. ICE and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) removed more than 250,000 illegal aliens last fiscal year, including more than 1,000 convicted murderers.

Some good news in the report: The Trump administration has more than doubled the number of gang removals over the last year of the Obama administration.

The Data
The two agencies removed 256,085 criminal aliens in fiscal 2018, a 13.25-percent increase from the 226,119 removed in 2017, and the highest number since 2014. CBP took out 160,726, while ICE removed 95,360. Of the total removed, 145,262 had criminal convictions, a 14-percent increase from 2017. Another 22,796 faced pending criminal charges, a 39-percent increase from 2017, and 88,027 were designated as “other immigration violator[s].”

How big a figure is 256,085? Federal authorities removed the equivalent of the 255,214 people who live in Madison, Wisconsin, or nearly all the 258,612 residents of Buffalo, New York.

Frightening thing is, thousands of the illegals were murderers, dope dealers, sex fiends, and gang members. Dozens were terrorists.

Immigration gumshoes collared and removed 1,641 illegals convicted for some form of homicide, and 1,294 convicted of kidnapping, plus 4,975 sex criminals, not including those with sex-assault convictions. Authorities removed 3,740 of those in the latter category. Robbery and burglary convicts numbered 14,257. Another 8,094 of the removed aliens had weapons convictions.

Of course, most Americans aren’t likely to run into illegal-alien murderers. But they might well encounter a border-jumping drunk. Authorities removed 54,630 illegals convicted of drunk driving. They removed 55,109 convicted of offenses involving dangerous drugs.

Federal authorities also issued 177,147 immigration detainers, a 24-percent increase over fiscal 2017. The number was a staggering 106-percent more than the final fiscal year of the Obama administration.

Proving the Donald Right
And the numbers also show, as The New American has reported, that President Trump is right in his assessment of illegal aliens in general — that many of them are dangerous criminals. That would include the illegal aliens in Tijuana known now as “migrants.”

Authorities took out 5,872 known or suspected gang members, an 8.8-percent increase over the 5,396 removed in fiscal 2017. But it was an amazing 185-percent more than the 2,057 removed during the last year of the Obama administration.

Officials also removed 42 known or suspected terrorists, three less than fiscal 2017, but 15 more than the 27 removed during fiscal 2016.

Removals from the interior of the country also increased about 17 percent from 81,603 in fiscal 2017 to 95,360 in 2018. The removals for 2018 increased 46 percent from 2016.

Where They Were From
Unsurprisingly, the four countries that contributed the most removals were Mexico and the Northern Triangle countries of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador.

The number of Mexicans removed was 141,045, a 9.5-percent increase from 2017. Another 50,390 were Guatemalans, a 50-percent increase from fiscal 2017. Hondurans numbered 28,894, a 29-percent increase, and Salvadorans, 15,445, an 18-percent decrease.

From there, the number removed per country dropped precipitously to less than 2,000 for every country on the list. China, with 726 removals, was 12th on the list.

ICE also reported 158,581 “administrative arrests.” Those constitute the “arrest of an alien for a civil violation of U.S. immigration laws, which is subsequently adjudicated by an immigration judge or through other administrative processes.”

That figure is a 10.5-percent increase from fiscal 2017, and a whopping 44-percent increase from 2016, again, the last year of the Obama administration when removing illegal aliens was not a priority of the former president’s administration.

Waiting in Tijuana
These figures notwithstanding, advocates to open the borders to the migrant horde squatting in Tijuana ignore what the president has said since the invaders began marching for the U.S. border on October 12.

The teeming mass of humanity likely contains innumerable criminals, the president said, a claim borne out by figures from the Mexican government: Nearly 10 percent of the 6,000 are criminals.

How many of the 500 are murderers, rapists, or dope dealers is unknown. But given the figures in the ICE report, the question migrant lobbyists won’t answer is why they want to bring in more criminals whom authorities must track down and deport.

The Democratic Socialists would rather destroy the Republic than give the President a victory over crime. i have not heard one Democrat come forward in defense of the president or rage against the invasion of our borders. We are witnessing the continuation of destabilization of the continents on both sides of the globe. We can no longer think of these takeovers as local, they are global.

Morty Tupperman

The Democrats will STILL find a way to count their votes in the next election…


HERE in Taxachusetts (as well as other blue states, i’m sure) the politicians are activly interfering with the ICE agent’s attempts to detain the dirtbags. In one case a judge had a perp snuck out the back door of the courthouse because she knew that there were ICE agents in the building waiting to detain him.

One of the ways that the immigration problems can be dealt with besides the wall is to increase the penalty for employing illegals. I think it is now a whopping $ 750.00 fine. Let’s change to $ 10,000 fine per illegal employed or harbored along with 10 years in prison. The harboring part should include mayors or others that notify about ICE sweeps or those officials that turn loose illegals from jails or traffic stops. This would tend to dry up the appetite for hiring these individuals.

The number one priority of the dem’s is politics and denying Trump any victories at all costs. Country is a distant second and God isn’t on the list.

Martin Steed

You people are just racists. These migrants are good people just trying to better their lives. They are probably all honor graduates, choir members or alter boys. That’s what we are told. They will make out country better. If that is true, why is the country they left in such bad shape?

Harold :

And the politician’s wonder ” why our crime rate is up ” . We can’t heal our own people like we should , children dropping out of school , mom and dad having to work multiple jobs to put food on the table . Republicans , you who are sitting silent , when my President is being attacked , because you decided he was not good enough , are as much to blame as the Democrats and Liberals .

michael failla

We..the American people know this, The conservative part of the republican party knows this, the democrats and leftists know this as well. The difference with the left is they dont care. Those illegals represent votes in their warped minds and border a hindrance to their power. They cant run on their ideas so they have to import the voters. In addition: it is like josef stalin said: it is not important who you vote for, what IS important is who counts the votes.

Another tactic of the left to destroy the USA and establish one world government is countries without borders. We can see how well that works with the EU and their ‘one world’ thing, millions of muzlim ‘migrants’ now infest every country stupid enough to have signed up for that bright idea. These lovely people have set up tent cities (much like those in parts of CA) and taken over parts or all of certain cities where the citizens dare not go now, as in Dearborn, MI. Sanctuary cities & states need to be abandoned by legal US citizens so the areas can be cordoned off and controlled by the military as occupied enemy territory, because at some point it will take armed forces to round them up and expel them from the USA because of open hostility, crime, disease they’re all infested with.


99.9% of the Democrats are demon possessed. They are the liberal progressive mob. This mob trying to enter our country are 99% males that carry disease and want to tear America down like their own country. We should deport DC (starting with Pelosi, Schumer, comey, Obama, mueller, the clintons and the rest of that trash) to one of their countries and give them a taste of what they want America to be like. Don’t you know these deplorables have walls around their property.


Can you imagine the staggering cost of detaining and removing a quarter million people from our country? Apprehending them, feeding them, running them through the system, transporting them and deporting them. I have heard from the left these people do not cost our country anything but are beneficial. I would love someone from the left to show me those stats.

Robin Boyd

We should sponsor a Democrat fundraising event in some Mexican town just across the border and have all of the illegal immigrants who have criminal records work the event as servers, parking attendants and security.


If the liberal left ignore the obvious threat of illegal immigration, they are dumber than a box of rocks. The threat is real! Wake up America and give President Trump the funding for The Wall.

william Chrales

Another reason to abolish this gang or murderous hateful thugs that wear a badge just because they want to Keep America safe and sound.

Remember just the other day Nancy Pelosi said during a press conference in El Paso, Texas that people “have a completely positive view” of immigrants.” She also stated that at a press conference that “voting for Democrats provides “leverage” to illegal immigrants,” and the final quote from this retard is; ” “Illegal immigrants are a blessing, they are doing what the Founding Fathers would wish, they are the best of the best, more American than Americans, reinvigorating, they are fabulous, beautiful, and patriotic, yes, very patriotic,” she said.

And remember, if you continue to live in the People’s Repubic of Kalifornimexistan, you voted for her fo the demise of your entire country,


To the crooked Dems, it’s no crisis to their bottom line.

Stan Jacobs

The Democrats want to shut down ICE, which is proof that they want the invaders here.
In Europe the fake image of the invaders was that they were just poor masses who are just looking for a job;
That portrayal was eventually proven to be false.
Meanwhile the enemy within (Democrats) continues to promote that false front to the American public.


Simply removing these criminals is not enough. Most of them turn right around and come back into the country, Instead of just removing them they should be put in a prison that requires hard labor, Busting rocks into gravel and gravel into sand would be a start. And after a number of years at hard labor release them back to their home countries with no compensation or personal property. MAYBE that would deter them from returning time after time

Awesome Job !!! ? Now I wish they could do something about the criminals inside the Beltway in DC. The commie libtard filth that lie to The American People everyday.
