3 Bermuda Nationals “Removed” By ICE In 2017

April 9, 2018

Three Bermuda nationals were “removed” by ICE in 2017, compared to one in 2016, according to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement [ICE] Enforcement and Removal Operations activities report.

The report defines a “removal” as the “compulsory and confirmed movement of an inadmissible or deportable alien out of the United States based on an order of removal.”

“ICE Removals include removals and returns initiated by ICE and those initiated by other agencies in which aliens were turned over to ICE for repatriation efforts. Returns include Voluntary Returns, Voluntary Departures, and Withdrawals Under Docket Control,” the report states.

Bermuda nationals make up less than 0.01% of the more than 200,000 “removals,” with the report stating that total removals declined from 240,255 in 2016 to 226,119 in 2017, which they attribute “primarily due to the decline in border apprehensions in 2017.”
