New Jersey had a huge surge in arrests by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents last year as a result of the crackdown on illegal aliens during President Donald Trump's first year in office.

There were 3,189 arrests in the Garden State’s fiscal year 2017 — a 42 percent increase compared to the previous year, NJ.com reports.

And a Pew Report analysis of immigration busts nationwide places New Jersey’s increase among the highest across the country.

But despite the overall rise in arrests in 2017, ICE made about twice as many arrests in fiscal 2009, the year Obama came into office -- 297,898, according to Pew, a nonpartisan demographic research group. This total generally declined in subsequent years.
