According to data supplied by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, approximately 335,000 Venezuelan nationals were encountered by the Border Patrol in 2023, but the Biden administration only deported 834 of them.

In addition, President Joe Biden also redesignated Temporary Protected Status for Venezuelans who arrived before July 31, 2023, shielding around 470,000 illegal border crossers from that country from deportation.

According to a February 24 report by Fox News, illegals from Venezuela are increasingly linked to violent crimes in the U.S.A.

Just last month, an illegal from Venezuela, Jose Antonio Ibarra, was arrested for the murder of 22-year-old Georgia coed Laken Riley who was found dead on the campus of the University of Georgia.

As for Chicago, the city reported that arrests of Venezuelan illegals has risen 11,000 percent since 2021.
