According to statistics, as of May 21, 2016, of the 950,062 illegal immigrants with deportation orders, less than one percent have been arrested by U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement agents.
“As of May 21, 2016, there were 950,062 aliens with final orders of removal on U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) national docket. Of those aliens, 939,056 were on ICE’s non-detained docket and 11,006 were on ICE’s detained docket,” said Thomas D. Homan, ICE director.
Immigration experts tell Washington Examiner sanctuary cities are the main reason for the high number of illegal aliens with deportation orders who are not in custody.
“The question I think people should be asking is, ‘Why are there so many criminal aliens who are at large?'” said Jessica M Vaughan, director of policy studies for the Center for Immigration Studies. “Why does ICE have to take to the streets to find these people? One reason is because so many criminal aliens have been released by sanctuary policies. If you look at the list of cities where these operations took place, many of them are sanctuaries. ICE has to do these kinds of operations when they are prevented from arresting criminal aliens while they are in jail,” she added.
According to Washington Examiner, there are an estimated 3 million illegal immigrants with criminal records, which does not include their “illegal” status.
