ICE Detains About 23,400 at End of June While Agency's Electronic Monitoring Program Grows to 280,000
(23 Jun 2022) After hovering around 20,000 for several months, Immigration and Customs Enforcement's detained population reached 23,390 on June 19, 2022—down slightly from the start of the month but still higher than in previous months. About three-quarters (74 percent) of people in detention were arrested by Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The number of immigrants arrested by ICE saw a modest but steady increase up to a total of 5,979. The number of immigrants in detention who were arrested by ICE has been under 6,000 since March 2021.

(10 Jun 2022) After hovering around 20,000 for several months, Immigration and Customs Enforcement's detained population reached 24,591 at the start of June.

But immigrants arrested by ICE—a total of 5,795—were at the highest number since March 2021.

Ukrainians at the U.S.-Mexico Border: Seeking Admission at U.S. Ports of Entry by Nationality
(17 May 2022) Last month in April a total of 20,994 Ukrainians seeking safety from the war ravaging their homeland turned up at U.S. ports of entry and were stopped at the border as "inadmissibles" without the necessary official documents which might authorize their entry into the U.S. Arrivals from Ukraine averaged 700 per day during April.

The remainder arrived as single adults or as couples without children. See more...
