Illegal Immigrant Arrests Doubling under Trump
In a sweeping success, the number of illegal immigrant arrests have more than doubled in San Diego since President Trump gave his immigration orders.
The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that illegal immigrants in southern California are being arrested at around the same rate as before President Obama’s nonchalant border policies. In a one-month span from February to May, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested almost 550 illegal immigrants in the city of San Diego alone.
During that same time period last year (during Obama’s reign), only 242 illegal immigrants were arrested. The year before that, the number was only 267.
ICE authorities were quick to comment on the sudden increase, “We’re still focusing on criminals, but we’re not confined to them.It’s the ability for us to enforce the law across the board,” Clinton Johnston, ICE’s Assistant Field Director in San Diego, told the San Diego Union-Tribune.
ICE’s San Diego Field Director for Enforcement and Removal Operations Greg Archambeault stated,“All we’re trying to do is protect the community and remove the threats.”
Archambeault was referencing Southern California’s decade-long wave of immigration which has particularly brought violence and foreign cartels into previously safe areas.
According to a Breitbart Texas report, a study by the Pew Research Center shows that there are at least a million illegal immigrants that live in the southern region of California alone. To give you a clearer picture, that means there are at least 170,000 illegal immigrants that live in San Diego. At least 120,000 live in San Jose.
