Biden Has Released Nearly 1.05 million SW Border Migrants into the U.S.; GAO Audit: Up to 33% of ICE Catch-and-Release Migrants Abscond

Disclosures: Biden Has Released Nearly 1.05 million SW Border Migrants into the U.S.L
More people than Delaware, and 2,115 per day — not counting “got-aways” and unaccompanied kids
The latest Biden administration disclosures in Biden v. Texas reveal that in May, DHS released 95,318 migrants CBP had encountered at the Southwest border into the United States, bringing the total of illegal migrant releases there under the Biden administration to 1,049,532 — a population larger than the number of residents in the president’s home state of Delaware, at a rate of 2,115 per day.
Background. Briefly, Texas is a suit brought by the states of Texas and Missouri in April 2021 to challenge the Biden administration’s suspension of the Trump-era Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP, better known as “Remain in Mexico”). The matter was assigned to Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas.
On June 1, while that case was pending, Mayorkas issued a memo terminating MPP. That termination decision was rolled into the pending case brought by the states.
On August 13, Judge Kacsmaryk issued an order enjoining Mayorkas’s termination of MPP. To ensure compliance with that order, the court required DHS to report monthly on the number of CBP encounters at the Southwest border, the number of aliens expelled pursuant to public-health orders issued by CDC under Title 42 of the U.S. Code in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, and the number released into the United States.
The latest disclosure was filed on June 15, reflecting DHS activity through the end of May. By my count, it is the eleventh such disclosure, including a supplemental one filed on September 23. --->READ MORE HERE

Up to 33% of ICE catch-and-release migrants abscond: GAO audit:
ICE’s catch-and-release program has a high failure rate, according to a new government audit released Wednesday that found up to one-third of migrants abscond before their time is up.
The Alternatives to Detention program, or ATD as it’s known within U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, also doesn’t have solid yardsticks to measure its success, even as the number of people ICE enrolls soars, the Government Accountability Office said in the exhaustive new analysis.
“In recent years, ICE has increasingly used the ATD program to provide case management and electronic monitoring of individuals it releases into the community while they await resolution of their immigration court proceedings. While ICE has taken steps to implement program policies, collect program data, and oversee the contract, further actions could improve its implementation, assessment, and oversight of the program and its $2.2 billion contract,” GAO concluded.
ICE has limited space for detaining the 3 million migrants it has on its docket, so it releases the vast majority of them into communities to wait for immigration court hearings.
Immigrant-rights advocates and Democrats want still fewer detentions and more releases, arguing that migrants can be placed on alternatives that will ensure they show up for their proceedings. --->READ MORE HERE
