President Biden’s Homeland Security Department has reportedly released over 50,000 migrants into the country without giving them a court date. Instead, the migrants have simply been told to report to an Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in the future.
Reports from Axios speculate only about 13% of migrants have reported to any ICE centers.
According to The Daily Wire:
“About 50,000 migrants who crossed the southern border illegally have now been released in the United States without a court date,” Axios said. “Although they are told to report to an Immigration and Customs Enforcement office instead, just 13% have shown up so far.”
“It’s unprecedented for agents to release migrants without an official notice to appear in court. Where it has occurred recently, migrants have instead been given a list of addresses and contacts for ICE offices across the country and told to report to one of them,” the outlet noted. ‘The hope has been for migrants to show up at these offices after reaching their final destination, to get work permits.”
Of those 50,000, “[j]ust 6,700 migrants who crossed between mid-March and mid-July showed up at ICE offices as of Monday, one source briefed on Department of Homeland Security data told Axios.”
“Another roughly 27,000 migrants who crossed and were released during the same time frame have yet to turn up but remain within the 60-day window for reporting. One DHS official emphasized that nearly 70% of migrants are within the 60-day window or have reported to ICE,” Axios said.
Individuals have 60 days to report to an ICE office or risk being removed from the county however under the current administration that’s unlikely to happen.
