The Biden administration has removed only a small fraction of the number of illegal immigrants that previous administrations have, a senior US immigration official admitted in a recent testimony.
Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody pointed to the testimony as evidence that Biden’s team “willfully fails to enforce federal immigration law in an unprecedented manner.”
Moody said the evidence gathered during this escrow process showed that Biden’s officials “are in violation of the very federal laws that they are sworn to uphold.”
Official, Executive Associate Director for Enforcement and Removal Operations Corey Price, testified under oath Sept. 9 as part of Moody’s lawsuit against President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security and other border agencies.
Fox News aired a video of Florida Assistant Attorney General John Guard questioning Price.

GUARD: “Since President Biden became President on Jan. 20, 2021, the ERO is removing fewer aliens, right?”
PRICE: “That’s right.”
GUARD: “Director, ICE is picking up fewer aliens from the United States now than it has in the past ten years, isn’t it?”
PRICE: “I don’t have the data for the last ten years. But it’s less than at least the last four years I’ve had here.”

Fox reported that from 2008 to 2016, ICE deported about 400,000 illegal immigrants and never fewer than 230,000 a year. However, in 2021, under Biden, they had only deported 55,598.
Guard presented Price with data for the past decade.
GUARD: “In 2012, a decade ago, under President Obama, ICE removed almost eight times, or, excuse me, almost seven times the number of extraterrestrials [that] the Biden administration did it in either 2021 or 2022, right?”
PREIS: “That seems correct.”
GUARD: “Now not only are moves and bookings declining under the Biden administration, ICE is detaining fewer foreigners than it did during the Trump administration, right?” he asked.
PRICE: “That’s right.”
Additionally, Price confirmed that border officials detained only about 40 percent of illegal immigrants in 2021 than they did in 2019 under the Trump administration.
Moody told Fox News, “Our testimony provides even more evidence that the Biden administration is deliberately not enforcing federal immigration law in an unprecedented manner.”
“At every stage of the process, Biden intentionally fails to enforce the law and to detain and deport illegal immigrants,” she added.
“ICE career officials warned the government that its reckless policies would severely limit enforcement, and yet Biden continued to do so – proving once again that we blame only Biden for the border crisis and the spike in American deaths from Mexican fentanyl.”

Moody previously tweeted the testimony of US Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz under oath in July. Ortiz’s statement followed a similar theme.
According to an August press release from the Florida Attorney General’s Office, “Chief Ortiz testified that the crisis is ‘making the border less secure for Americans and immigrants.'”
Moody said in the statement, “After the Biden administration denied they were involved in catch-and-release and that they were responsible for the historic surge on our southern border, Florida got the Chief of Border Patrol to admit under oath the truth.
“The Biden administration caused the surge, made the border less secure, and blatantly violated the very federal laws they are sworn to uphold.
“The Biden administration is putting hard-working border guards in impossible and untenable positions – risking their lives and safety, and I want to thank Chief Ortiz for being truthful in his testimony.”
