ICE arrested only 35 out of 2,000 people who were the target of Trump & # 39; s many published raids
ICE arrested only 35 out of 2,000 people who were targeted by Trump & # 39; s highly published raids because migrants with definitive deportation orders did not know how to be at home in advance
- Report says that Trump & # 39; s touted ICE attacks resulted in the arrests of just 35 people
- The operation was aimed at 2,105 illegal immigrants with definitive deportation orders
- Publicity about the raids gave goals the opportunity to flee and hide
- Politicians from local officials to Hillary Clinton shared tips about avoiding ICE
- Trump has on average deported fewer people than Obama
Immigration and customs raids targeting more than 2,000 people who are illegally present in the country have, according to a new report, led to the arrest of only 35 people.
The much-published raids, promoted by President Donald Trump, had 2,105 individuals in a dozen cities with final orders for deportation directed by a court.
But the publicity and early warnings of activists who advised on how to avoid ICE agents probably hid many who were the target of removal.
& # 39; I don't know of any other population where people tell them how to prevent arrests due to illegal activities, & # 39; Matthew Albence, the acting director of ICE, told the New York Times, who reported the arrest figures.
Immigration and customs enforcement officials (ICE) are holding a man during an operation earlier this month in Escondido, California. Attacks targeting around 2,000 people with definitive orders for eviction appear to have been demolished, resulting in only 35 arrests
The raids were originally planned for June, but were postponed by Trump at the last minute until July 14.
The raids were similar to previous enforcement actions by other governments, both Republican and Democrat, except for the hype and publicity around them, not least promoted by Trump himself.
Activists and politicians responded by raising the alarm and urging illegal immigrants to refuse to open the door if ICE agents were knocking.
The advice was circulated by local activists and national politicians, including Hillary Clinton, as well as members of the progressive & # 39; team & # 39; from House Democrats, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.
& # 39; It certainly makes it more difficult for us to implement these orders issued & # 39 ;, Albence said on advice to escape the arrest.
& # 39; You did not hear ICE talk about it before the operation took place, & # 39; he added.
Protesters are marching on July 13 in Chicago to US immigration and customs enforcement offices. It is assumed that broad publicity about the raids has limited its effectiveness
The Trump government has, on average, deported fewer people per year than the Obama administration.
In fiscal year 2018, the Trump administration deported 256,086 immigrants, an increase of 13 percent over the previous year.
Former President Barack Obama removed 409,849 people in 2012, a record high and 235,413 in fiscal year 2015.
In the first two quarters of fiscal year 2019, the Trump administration deported 130,432 people, an increase from 123,253 in the same period of the previous year.
During the same period, 361,308 people were arrested who illegally crossed the southern border, many of whom were allowed to stay in the US indefinitely.
