Deportation of Illegal Aliens from the United States

For over a century, the United States has kept detailed records of removals and returns of illegal aliens entering the country. Below I took data from the website and built the interactive chart and tables. It is surprising to see which Administration actually deported the largest numbers of Illegal Aliens.


Removal: The compulsory and confirmed movement of an inadmissible or deportable alien out of the United States based on an order of removal. An individual who is removed may have administrative or criminal consequences placed on subsequent reentry because of the removal. ICE removals include removals and returns where aliens were turned over to ICE for removal efforts.

Return: The confirmed movement of a potentially inadmissible or deportable alien out of the United States not based on an order of removal, but through either voluntary departure, voluntary return, or withdrawal under docket control.

1911. 8 U.S.C. 1325 — Unlawful Entry, Failure To Depart, Fleeing Immigration Checkpoints, Marriage Fraud, Commercial Enterprise Fraud
