ICE arrests and deportations under Donald Trump rise in 2018

Washington, December 18 (RHC)-- New data show that the Donald Trump administration continues to increase the number of arrests and deportations of immigrants. 

During the 2018 fiscal year that ended in September, the U.S. deported more than a quarter-million people, a 13 percent increase over a year before.  Even so, the pace of deportations in 2018 was only about half of the record pace set under his predecessor President Barack Obama -- who was sometimes called “The Deporter-in-Chief.”
