Two Million Immigrants Released Into US Under Biden Are 'here indefinitely'; Biden’s Released at Least 2,020,522 Southwest Border Migrants and Probably a Lot More – Plus 1.3 Million Known “got-aways”

Two million immigrants released into US under Biden are 'here indefinitely'
The record number of immigrants released from the southern border into the interior of the United States on President Joe Biden's watch have little chance of removal, immigration policy experts told the Washington Examiner.
An estimated 2 million immigrants are awaiting future immigration court dates since Biden took office, and the likelihood that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers will remove them is virtually nonexistent, experts on various sides of the issue said.
"Given existing staffing constraints and the redirection of ICE resources to the southern border, it’s highly unlikely that the agency will be able to keep up with removal orders now or ahead without the allocation of major new resources for interior enforcement," said Colleen Putzel-Kavanaugh, Migration Policy Institute's research assistant, in an email.
A fellow at the conservative Center for Immigration Studies agreed with Putzel-Kavanaugh's assessment.
"Those aliens are here indefinitely, if not forever," said Andrew "Art" Arthur, a former immigration judge and a resident fellow in law and policy at CIS.
David Bier, the associate director of immigration studies at Washington-based libertarian think tank Cato Institute, added, "In general, it’s quite unlikely that someone released at the border would be put on an ICE plane and flown out of the country, though a very substantial number of those ordered removed do leave voluntarily after some time."
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has vowed repeatedly to deport those approved for deportation.
Of 11 million illegal immigrants residing in the country, 1.9 million have been given a final order of removal by a federal judge but remain in the country, according to the American Immigration Council. It's for this reason that immigration policy experts from various backgrounds view Mayorkas's claim as unrealistic.
Being released from government custody into the interior of the country is not the end of the immigration process but the beginning of a lengthy legal process to determine whether the government has the right to remove that person — a process that can take five to 10 years more years to navigate.--->READ MORE HERE
Biden’s Released at Least 2,020,522 Southwest Border Migrants And probably a lot more – plus 1.3 million known “got-aways”:
One of the most common questions that I regularly get is “How many illegal migrants has President Biden released?” I have run the numbers, and it’s at least 2,020,522. I promise to show my math, but the real total is likely hundreds of thousands more, plus 1,373,155 others who evaded Border Patrol agents, all thanks to the president’s “catch and release” policies.
Disclosures in Texas v. Biden. Most of the information publicly available on President Biden’s migrant releases comes from Texas v. Biden, a case filed by the states of Texas and Missouri in April 2021 to force DHS to reimplement the Trump-era Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), better known as “Remain in Mexico”.
By way of background, MPP was a program implemented in January 2019 by then-DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, which allowed CBP to return “other than Mexican” migrants (OTMs) caught entering illegally back to Mexico to await their removal hearings.
Although MPP was not in full effect until summer 2019, nearly 70,000 OTMs were returned across the border under the program during the Trump administration. When their hearing dates arrived, MPP enrollees were paroled in custody into the United States to appear before immigration judges at border “port courts”. If they were granted asylum, they were admitted into the United States; if asylum was denied, they were removed.
In its October 2019 assessment of the program, DHS determined that MPP was “an indispensable tool in addressing the ongoing crisis at the southern border and restoring integrity to the immigration system”, particularly as related to alien families. Asylum cases were expedited under the program and, as a consequence, MPP removed incentives for aliens to make weak or bogus claims when apprehended.
Despite the effectiveness (and indispensability) of MPP, one of President Biden’s first actions after taking office was to suspend new enrollments in the program.
That prompted Texas and Missouri to file suit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas, where it was assigned to Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk. Despite the pendency of that matter, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas formally terminated MPP in June 2021.--->READ MORE HERE
