The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency deported more than a quarter of a million illegal aliens from the United States in Fiscal Year 2019, including roughly 5,500 gang members.

Between September 2018 and October 2019, ICE agents deported about 267,258 illegal aliens from the U.S. — a more than four percent increase compared to 2018 and a nearly 20 percent increase compared to 2017 deportation levels.

This year, about 85,958 of those illegal aliens were deported from the interior of the U.S., while the other more than 181,000 illegal aliens were deported after arriving at the southern border.

The overwhelming majority of illegal aliens deported from the U.S. interior, roughly 65,000, were convicted criminals, while another 13,500 illegal aliens had pending criminal charges against them. There are anywhere between 11 and 22 million illegal aliens living in the interior of the country at any given time, straining ICE’s resources.

Additionally, ICE deported 5,497 known or suspected gang members who were living in the U.S. in 2019. Nearly 60 known or suspected terrorists were also deported.

Among those gang members and terrorists deported this year are foreign nationals like 26-year-old Carlos Alfredo Luna-Guebara from El Salvador who was a wanted fugitive in his native country for aggravated homicide, conspiracy to commit homicide, and terrorist organization membership.

Luna-Guebara was a known member of the 18th Street Gang. The illegal alien successfully entered the U.S. through the southern border. Luna-Guebara was only deported after being arrested in Pennsylvania on local charges.

Likewise, ICE deported 45-year-old Houcine Ghoul from Tunisia after it was revealed that he had entered the U.S. on a tourist visa and fraudulently married an American citizen to obtain a green card after overstaying his visa.
