DHS Refuses to Disclose Data on the Release of Illegal Immigrants

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is refusing to provide information about the total number of illegal immigrants and border crossers that have entered the United States since January when President Biden took office, according to Breitbart News.  Though “limited data” was provided by the DHS in October revealing that “the agency had released ‘at least 500,000’ border crossers and illegal aliens into the U.S. interior since the beginning of the year,” they would not respond to probing questions that would reveal details on “how and where border crossers and illegal aliens are being released.” 

Breitbart reports, “Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), who sits on the Senate Homeland Security Committee, sent a letter to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, asking for a full accounting of every border crosser and illegal alien released into the U.S. interior since January.” The letter, sent on October 19, 2021 requested a full account of this data “as soon as possible but no later than November 2, 2021.” Johnson requested monthly updates on the data as well. 

In his letter, Johnson called out Mayorkas for failing to respond to his questions “about basic information on apprehensions at the U.S. border.” One week later, Johnson received minimal data. “This year through August, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has apprehended more than 1.3 million illegal aliens and is on track to set a record for the most apprehensions in a single year. Recently, more than 25,000 illegal aliens amassed under a bridge in Del Rio, Texas and reports indicate another massive surge is coming. Reportedly, 125,000 migrants are currently making their way through Central America, attempting to reach the United States.”

Johnson also raised concerns that “media reports indicate that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is not just releasing illegal aliens into border towns after CBP processing, but rather transporting illegal aliens from the border to cities within the interior of the United States. It also appears that ICE might not be properly assessing these illegal aliens before releasing them into the interior of the U.S. If true, ICE’s reported actions could threaten the safety and security of all Americans.” 

Asking for information on data concerning “MS-13 gang members, criminal illegal alien deportations, the downing of drones at the border, and Catch and Release totals,” Johnson has still not received an “adequate” response from Mayorkas. 

The reluctance to share this information publicly should be unsettling to Americans. According to Breitbart, “the limited data provided shows that the totals are enormously overwhelming compared to the populations of some American cities and towns.”

Migrants refuse to go to Brooklyn cruise terminal shelter, return to Manhattan hotel

It’s the details bleeding heart liberals fail to think about. Take New York City as a perfect example where the liberal city cannot welcome hundreds of thousands of migrants with open arms as it says the rest of the country should do.

Last week saracarter.com reported on how the Big Apple was turning a Brooklyn Cruise ship terminal into shelter for migrant families flooding into the city. That plan has already backfired.

More than 50 migrants camped outside the Watson Hotel in Manhattan in protest against the cruise terminal. On Sunday night over a dozen police officers responded to the hotel to provide crowd control.

One activist told the New York Post that the migrants feel the shelter is “not livable” after several migrants went to the Terminal shelter over the weekend but promptly returned to the hotel.

The migrants preferred to sleep outside the hotel saying that the shelter had no heat, privacy or blankets.

The migrants hung a banner demanding permanent free housing and to “cancel rent.”

A spokesperson for Mayor Eric Adams said the city continues to “surpass our moral obligations” in caring for the influx of migrants.

“More than 42,000 asylum seekers have arrived in New York City since last spring and we continue to surpass our moral obligations as we provide asylum seekers with shelter, food, health care, education, and a host of other services,” spokesperson Fabien Levy told the New York Post.

“The facilities at Brooklyn Cruise Terminal will provide the same services as every other humanitarian relief center in the city, and the scheduled relocations to Brooklyn Cruise Terminal this weekend took place as planned,” Levy added. “We remain in serious need of support from both our state and federal governments.”
