“The president’s budget asked for 52,000 beds, which is really what me need to get the job done,” said the ICE official. “Congress hasn’t seemed fit to fund us at that level, we asked for that last year as well, but when you’re talking about the cap on the ICE beds it’s particularly disturbing because that means we’ll be releasing at least 10,000 criminals back into the communities, that means when the law enforcement agency arrests somebody for domestic violence of for sexual assault of a minor — that is in this country illegally — that ICE won’t be able to come and puck them up and if they did then we’ll probably have to release them because we wont have money to detain them.”

Albence also said ICE arrested more than 11,000 criminal illegal immigrants in President Trump’s first year in office than were detained during Obama’s final year as president.
