An Axios report revealed the Biden Administration has released approximately 50,000 previously-captured illegal immigrants without setting or requiring court dates.
The report claims illegal immigrants were asked to eventually report back to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Of those who had been released about 13% actually contacted an ICE agent to follow up.
This news comes after reports of illegal immigration apprehension are continuing to increase beyond expectations. In July, it’s being estimated that there have been a total of one million apprehensions, putting the US on track to realize two million apprehensions by the end of 2021.
The incredible influx of illegal immigration may be the reason why the Former Vice President Biden Administration is not requiring court dates for apprehended criminals entering the US.
Axios seems to be shocked by the news as well saying “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 hope has been for migrants to show up at these offices after reaching their final destination, to get work permits.”
Axios went on to say, “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.”
