ICE deported more than 4,000 known or suspected gang members in fiscal year 2020, including hundreds belonging to the MS-13 gang, the agency said in a new report.
The Immigration and Customs Enforcement end-of-year report for FY 2020 finds that the agency, which has come under fire from activists and lawmakers during the Trump administration, deported 185,884 immigrants.
Of that number, 64% had either criminal convictions or pending criminal charges — 399,235 aliens.
According to the report, 4,276 were known or suspected gang members, including 675 known or believed to have been a member of the brutal gang MS-13.
Additionally, 31 were known or suspected terrorists. Among the high-profile cases was the September removal of Saudin Agani, who ICE said provided material support to a terror organization, and the relative of the suspect who attacked two New York City cops earlier this year.
