Following damaging testimony obtained through a Florida Attorney General’s Office deposition of the U.S. Border Chief, Attorney General Ashley Moody is releasing new evidence highlighting intentionally weak immigration enforcement by the Biden administration. Earlier this month, lawyers for Attorney General Moody deposed Immigration and Customs Enforcement Executive Associate Director for Enforcement and Removal Operations Corey Price.
Under oath, Director Price testified that ICE is removing more than seven times fewer inadmissible immigrants than the agency did in 2012. Price admitted ICE is booking-in roughly half the number of immigrants it did during the Trump administration. Price also testified that ICE is booking in roughly 40% the number of immigrants it did during the last border surge. Finally, Price testified that senior Biden officials knew its immigration priorities would cut enforcement in half, yet still implemented them.
Attorney General Ashley Moody said, “Our deposition provides even more proof that the Biden administration is intentionally underenforcing federal immigration law in a way that has never been seen. At every phase of the process, Biden is purposely failing to enforce the law and detain and remove inadmissible immigrants. Career ICE officials warned the administration that their reckless policies would drastically cut enforcement and still Biden continued to implement them—proving yet again, we only have Biden to blame for the border crisis and the surge in American deaths from Mexican fentanyl.”
