DHS Cuts Catch and Release, Still Frees 130 Illegal Aliens Every Day into U.S.

While the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has cut down on the number of border crossers and illegal aliens they release into the United States interior, the agency continues to release nearly 130 individuals a day.
Between August 27 and September 2, DHS released about 900 border crossers and illegal aliens into the interior of the U.S. This indicates that at current rates, DHS is releasing a little more than 128 border crossers and illegal aliens every day — a slight drop compared to the 192 border crossers and illegal aliens who were released every day between July 23 and August 26.
Despite these releases, DHS has made significant cuts to the catch and release program since President Trump enacted of the Remain in Mexico policy that mandates border crossers wait out their asylum processes in Mexico rather than being released into the U.S. interior.
The catch and release process often entails federal immigration officials busing border crossers into nearby border cities — as well as flying them into the interior of the country — and dropping them off with the hope they show up for their immigration and asylum hearings.
