Analysis: Biden Frees 1.35M Illegal Aliens into U.S. Since Taking Office, Exceeding Populations of Eight States
President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has released nearly 1.35 million border crossers and illegal aliens into the United States from February 2021 to August 2022, new analysis reveals.
The analysis, conducted by the Center for Immigration Studies’ Andrew Arthur, reviewed the latest Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency data that shows almost 2.2 million border crossers and illegal aliens have entered American communities since Biden took office — including nearly 1.35 million who were directly released into the U.S. interior by Biden’s DHS.
“If wealthy cities like D.C., New York, and Chicago are struggling to deal with the 11,000 released migrants border governors have sent them in recent weeks, imagine what will happen when the rest of us get our fair share,” Arthur writes.
The roughly 1.35 million border crossers and illegal aliens released into American communities by the Biden administration, which includes Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs), exceeds the resident populations of Wyoming, Vermont, Alaska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Delaware, Rhode Island, and Montana.
The number of releases is also twice the population of Boston, Massachusetts, nearly three times that of Atlanta, Georgia, and about 20 times the population of Portland, Maine. --->READ MORE HERE
CBP Document Details Mass Release of Illegal Aliens under Biden
More than 1.3 million so far, plus hundreds of thousands of gotaways
While you must dig to find it, CBP discloses the number of illegal migrants it has apprehended and released at the Southwest border in FY 2022 on a webpage captioned “Custody and Transfer Statistics”. Well, partially discloses, at least, because while that page reveals that more than 553,000 aliens apprehended by Border Patrol agents have been released this fiscal year, it doesn’t include port encounters or unaccompanied alien children. That page also indicates that hundreds of thousands of other illegal migrants were transferred to ICE for detention — and that agency doesn’t hold most such “immigration violators” for long. All told, about 2.2 million aliens have exploited Biden’s border policies — thus far.
DHS Is Supposed to Detain All Illegal Entrants. Under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), DHS is required to detain every illegal entrant, as well as all other inadmissible aliens stopped at entry and deemed inadmissible. Due to resource constraints, various administrations have struggled to comply with that congressional detention mandate, but unlike President Biden, at least his predecessors tried.
As I explained on September 8, of the more than 3.5 million aliens CBP encountered at the Southwest border under the Obama and Trump administrations between FY 2013 and FY 2019 who were subject to detention, 1.195 million-plus (57 percent) were detained and held, and an additional 22 percent were detained for some period and released. Just 749,013 (21 percent) were never detained.
By contrast, just 10 percent of the more than 525,000 aliens encountered by CBP in FY 2021 who were processed for removal (most under the Biden administration) were detained, while 26 percent were detained and released and nearly two-thirds — 64 percent — were never detained. While detention was the rule under his two predecessors, it’s far and away the exception under Biden. --->READ MORE HERE
