Deportations of illegal aliens living across the United States in the interior of the country increased 37 percent after President Trump signed his Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States Executive Order five days after being inaugurated.

A year-end Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) report reveals how effective Trump’s pro-enforcement executive order has been throughout the first year of his presidency thus far, with deportations of illegal aliens living in the U.S. — and not those caught at the border — peaking at more than 61,000 between January 20 to September 30, 2017.

Compare that figure to the number of illegal aliens living in the interior of the country who were deported in that same time frame under former President Obama, when less than 45,000 illegal aliens were deported...



Customs and Border Protection removals have declined under Trump because illegal border crossings have declined. However, deportations of illegal aliens have indeed increased under President Trump.
