Sweeping raids across the United States has seen violent gang members apprehended by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, with more 256,000 illegal aliens deported in 2018 alone, according to reports.
Pedophiles, child abusers, and violent gang members are among those deported by ICE this year, including 95,360 illegal aliens living in the U.S and 160,725 caught by Border Patrol crossing into the country.
The most notable deportations are the 95,000 illegal aliens living throughout the interior of the country.
There are an estimated 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living across the US at the moment, putting a strain on ICe agents.
But ICE has already intensified deportations by more 5 percent since President Obama’s last year in office, with a mere 65,000 being deported.
There has also been an about an 11.5 percent increase of deportations of convicted criminal illegal aliens, including those with pending criminal charges since Fiscal Year 2016.
ICE has managed to increase the deportation of illegal alien gang members by more than 85 percent compared to Fiscal Year 2016.
Almost 6,000 illegal aliens, known or suspected gang members, were deported by ICE compared with the t 2,000 illegal alien gang members deported under Obama.
The deportation of known illegal alien terrorists has also risen, totaling about 42 deportations for the Fiscal Year 2018.
Trump's visa sanctions on foreign countries declining to take back their nationals has also had a positive impact on deportations.
The Trump administration placed visa restrictions on Cambodia, Cuba, Eritrea, Guinea, and Sierra Leone.
The number of nationals deported to the foreign countries soared to a 279 percent rise in deportations from the U.S. to Cambodia.
Deportations to Cuba saw a 189 percent increase.
Deportations to Guinea saw a 50 percent increase.
Last month, Texas Border Patrol agents arrested a group of 39 migrants attempting to enter the United States illegally, with many of illegal immigrants having criminal histories that include convictions for homicide, child rape, and other sexual crimes against children.
Three of those arrested at the Rio Grande Valley Sector are also known members of violent gangs.
