More than 3 out of 4 illegal immigrants arrested under Trump have criminal records

An article from The Washington Post points out just how successful Trump’s policies on dealing with illegal immigrants in our country have been.

Federal immigration agents are arresting more than 400 immigrants a day, including violent offenders, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Wednesday. The sharpest increase in arrests is among immigrants who have never been convicted of any crime.

In President Trump’s first 100 days in office, Immigration and Customs Enforcement has arrested 41,318 immigrants, up 37.6 percent over the same period last year, the agency said. More than three out of four of those arrested have criminal records.

Nearly 11,000 immigrants with no criminal convictions were arrested during that time period, compared with 4,242 during the same period last year.

The highlight of the earth-shattering statistics has to be the fact that more than three-fourths of them had a prior criminal record. A huge talking point of the left is that Trump’s policies will impact people who have committed no crimes(even though they all have committed crimes by coming to this country illegally) These numbers prove that talking point is false.
