A top Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) official admitted that the Biden administration has removed a fraction of the amount of illegal migrants in the last decade compared to previous administrations.
Executive Associate Director for Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Corey Price testified under oath during a Sept. 9 deposition, first obtained by Fox News Digital, as part of discovery in a lawsuit by Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody against the Department of Homeland Security and other border agencies.
“Since President Biden became president on January 20, 2021, ERO is removing less aliens, correct?” asked Florida Chief Deputy Attorney General John Guard.
“That’s correct,” responded Price.
“Now, not only are removals and book ins declining under the Biden administration, ICE is detaining less aliens than it did during the Trump administration, correct?” asked the Florida counselor.
Price replied: “That’s correct.”
