Biden Administration Admits it Does Not Know How Many Illegals Have Been Deported

The Biden Administration’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) admitted in a recent letter that it has not been keeping track of the number of illegal aliens who have been deported after initially being released into the country.

As reported by Breitbart, the DHS on Biden’s watch has reinstated the controversial open-borders policy of “Catch and Release,” where illegals who are apprehended at the border are promptly released into the nation’s interior. Over the last year, this practice has seen at least one million illegals released into the country after initially being detained.

Most illegals who are released using this practice are given a Notice to Appear (NTA) before an immigration judge so that their asylum case may be heard. But at least 85 percent of them do not show up for their court date and simply run away, with the DHS and other federal authorities making no effort to track them down and arrest them.

In a letter sent to Congressman Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), DHS officials now admit that they are “unable to statistically track the number of noncitizens released by Customs and Border Protection (CBP)…who have been removed from the United States.”

The Biden Administration has refused to disclose the number of deportations in Fiscal Year 2021, an unprecedented suppression of crucial information as the border crisis rages on.
