The following article, Border Patrol Leak: Massive Number of Migrants Released into US, ‘Largely Unsupervised’, was first published on Flag And Cross.
When Joe Biden took office, there were many around the nation who believed, perhaps foolishly, that the border crisis would be atop his list of legislative priorities. After all, the coronation of a Democratic president would undoubtedly cause a major surge in immigration to the United States, given just how lenient the left has been when it comes to the issue of border security.
But no. Instead, Biden went on to make a whole to-do of undoing many of former President Donald Trump’s work, including a number of border orders.
Now a leak from within US Border Patrol is outlining just how massive the ballooning border crisis has become.
At least 160,000 illegal immigrants have been released into the U.S., often with little to no supervision, by the Biden administration since March – including a broad use of limited parole authorities to make more than 30,000 eligible for work permits since August, Border Patrol documents obtained by Fox News show.
The documents give a partial snapshot into how the Biden administration has been releasing enormous numbers of migrants into the U.S., often with little to no oversight, supervision or immediate risk of deportation.
And that’s not all…
Since March 20, at least 94,570 illegal immigrants have been released into the U.S. with Notices to Report. Those who receive such a notice are only required to check in with an ICE office when they get to their final destination – which could be anywhere across the country. Those who check in are not deported or detained as their immigration proceedings move forward.
Meanwhile, since Aug 6th, the administration has released roughly 32,000 immigrants into the U.S. via parole – which gives migrants a form of legal status and the ability to apply for work permits.
Federal law says parole authority is to be used on a case-by-case basis for “urgent humanitarian purposes” and “significant public benefit.” Typically only a handful of parole cases are granted by officials, but the Biden administration has been using it more broadly, including in its parole of tens of thousands of Afghans into the United States as part of Operation Allies Welcome.
Biden’s unwillingness to address the issue on the southern border has been in line with the White House’s overall inaction on a great many policy fronts, which has led to a general frustration with the White House in recent months.
