DHS: Lowest Number of
Illegal Alien Arrests Since 1972

CNSNews.com
The Department of Homeland Security’s 2011 Yearbook of Immigration Statistics was released last month, including figures that show that the number of illegal aliens apprehended in the United States was the lowest in 40 years.

The report shows (page 91, table 33) that in fiscal year 2011, the number of illegal aliens apprehended was 641,633 -- at that time the lowest total apprehensions since 1972 when the number of illegal aliens apprehended was 505,949.

The report shows that the number of illegal aliens apprehended has steadily decreased over the course of the Obama administration, from 869,857 in fiscal year 2009 to 641,633 in fiscal year 2011.

The table includes the following totals for fiscal years 2008-2011:

2008: 1,043.863
2009: 869,857
2010: 752,329
2011: 641,633

The table also shows that from 1976 to 2008, the number of apprehensions ranged from 910,361 in 1980 to 1,814,729 in 2000.

The largest number of apprehensions during the Obama administration -- 869,857 in fiscal year 2009 -- which, at the time, was the lowest total since 1974 when 788,145 illegal aliens were apprehended.

The report notes that beginning in 2008, the figures include all “administrative arrest conducted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations” and that apprehensions were conducted by Customs and Border Protection and ICE.

The report also reveals where the most apprehensions took place in the United States (page 95, table 35). The Tucson, Ariz., sector had the highest number of apprehensions from fiscal year 2002 to fiscal year 2011, with the highest total of 439,105 arrests reported in 2004. The lowest number of arrests in the sector came in 2011, with 123,285 apprehensions reported.

Editor's Note: So much for the Obama Administration's claim that they are more aggressive on illegal immigration than the previous administration. Is anyone else getting tired of having the facts refute this administration's contentions?
