Shocker: Illegal immigrants not checking in with ICE

By Jordan Davidson, The Federalist

Nearly 90 percent of the 50,000 migrants released by the Biden administration have not yet reported to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement within the required 60-day window.

While at least 27,000 of the illegal aliens still have time within their allotted 60 days to report to ICE, Axios reported that at least 16,000 of those whose window of time has expired have disregarded the honor system and “not showed up.”

“That’s 2.4 no-shows for every one that has checked in,” the report states.

Biden’s Department of Homeland Security spokeswoman Meira Bernstein maintains that “many [migrants] are proactively reaching out to ICE to begin their official immigration processing, including by receiving a Notice to Appear,” but noted that “those who do not report, like anyone who is in our country without legal status, are subject to removal by ICE.”

Border officials first began releasing asylum-seeking illegal aliens from custody without issuing them an official court date in March due to limited space in already overwhelmed holding facilities.

Instead of giving migrants a formal notice to appear in court to determine if they will be deported, as normal Customs and Border Protection policy requires, illegal aliens were given the contact information for ICE offices “across the country” and instructed to finish their processes there.

This system was pitched as a temporary one to accommodate the large influx of border crossings occurring during the spring months but has continued throughout the summer as illegal immigration skyrockets. In the Rio Grande Valley alone, where border apprehensions have risen as high as 20,000 a day, at least 7,300 illegal aliens were released this past week without official court dates.
