Biden border official reveals White House has removed a FRACTION of migrants compared to Obama


A top Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) official admitted under oath that his agency removed seven times more migrants under President Obama in 2012 than it does under President Biden. 

Executive Associate Director for Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Corey Price made the stunning admission during a Sept. 9 deposition as part of a lawsuit by Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody against the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and other agencies. 

‘Director, ICE currently is removing less aliens from the United States than it has in the last decade, right?’ Florida Chief Deputy Attorney General John Guard asked. 

‘I do not have the last ten years’ data available. But it is less than at least the last four years that I have here,’ Price replied.

From 2008 to 2016, ICE removed up to 400,000 aliens per year and never less than 230,000. In 2021 the agency removed only 55,598 aliens

‘In 2012, a decade ago, under President Obama, ICE removed almost eight times or, excuse me, almost seven times the number of aliens than the Biden administration did in either 2021 or 2022, right?’ asked the attorney.

‘That appears correct,’ said Price.

Price also testified that ICE was detaining far fewer migrants under Biden in 2021 than it did under Trump in 2019. 

‘In 2021, ICE detained approximately 40 percent of the aliens than it did in 2019, right? And it’s 50,000 to 19,254,’ said Guard. 

‘That appears correct,’ Price responded.

That’s despite the fact there were nearly double the migrant encounters at the southern border in fiscal year 2021 that there were in 2019 – 1,734,686 to 977,509. 

The latest Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data shows so far 2,150,638 encounters for 2022, with one more month to go in the fiscal year.

Meanwhile, a new CRC Research poll for the 85 Fund, a conservative group, found that a majority of Americans believe ‘sanctuary cities’ should have to help house unlawful migrants just as border towns do. 

The poll, obtained by National Review, asked:  ‘In order to manage the influx of illegal immigrants crossing the border, the state of Texas has sent buses of immigrants to other states and sanctuary cities including Chicago, New York City, and Washington DC. Do you agree or disagree that sanctuary cities should have to share the burden of dealing with these illegals and not just the border states?’

Even a slight majority of Democrats – 51 percent – agreed, as did 78 percent of Republicans and 63 percent of Independents. 

Recently Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis made waves by sending two chartered planes of 50 migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, a billionaire’s enclave off Massachusetts. 

Democrats decried the move, with California Gov. Gavin Newsom suggesting the Department of Justice investigate states potentially ‘kidnapping’ migrants to fly them to other states.
