WASHINGTON, DC.- Recent deportations in Nebraska and five nearby states climbed dramatically compared to a year ago.
According to an ICE spokesman, in Nebraska, Minnesota, Iowa, North and South Dakota, there have been 949 deportations in the last four months nearly twice that of the same period last year.
And that’s keeping with the national trend which found a 38 percent increase in civilian immigration arrests, which totaled 41,000 during President Trump’s first 100 days in office.
“These statistics reflect President Trump’s commitment to enforcing our immigration laws fairly and uniformly,” said ICE Acting Director Thomas Homan.
According to ICE, 75 percent of the recent arrests were convicted criminals, with offenses ranging from homicides and assaults to sexual abuse and drug charges.
