Mayorkas unable to say how many Americans have been killed by illegals since Biden took office

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is apparently unable to state how many Americans have been killed or attacked by illegal aliens since President Joe Biden took office in early 2021.

During a House Appropriations Committee hearing on Wednesday, Rep. Ashley Hinson (R-IA) asked Mayorkas if he was “aware of the number of Americans who have been killed or attacked by illegal immigrants since you took office?”

Mayorkas dodged the question, saying the Biden administration has “deported and deported approximately 1.4 million” illegal aliens from the United States since Biden took office. This figure, however, combines the number of illegal aliens deported and those returned to Mexico after arriving at the southern border.

“But do you know how many Americans have been killed or attacked by illegal immigrants? It should be a top priority for you not only to know that number, but also to know the names of those victims,” Hinson asked again, to which Mayorkas again dodged.

The federal government continues to fail to collect data on the number of illegal aliens who are arrested each year by local and state law enforcement for crimes against U.S. citizens and legal immigrants.

According to previous estimates, about 2,000 Americans and legal immigrants are killed each year by illegal aliens.

Although the number of annual U.S. casualties from illegal immigration remains unknown, Biden’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency has overseen a massive drop in the number of illegal aliens apprehended and deported from inside the United States. UNITED STATES.

In fiscal year 2022, for example, convicted illegal aliens were apprehended by ICE officers at the lowest rate in at least half a decade. Similarly, the number of custody requests ICE officers have placed on illegal aliens after they were arrested for local crimes has been reduced by 56% since fiscal year 2018.

Additionally, in all of fiscal year 2022, ICE agents were able to deport fewer than 30,000 illegal aliens who lived in U.S. communities, or just 0.3% of the country’s illegal alien population. . In the same year, the fewest number of illegal alien gang members were deported from the United States since former President Obama was in office.
