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.”

BREAKING: DHS Secretary Mayorkas Supports Amnesty
During a heated testimony, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas expressed his support for amnesty and a path to citizenship for those who have entered the United States illegally.
Mayorkas tried to dodge at first, saying “only Congress can provide legal status or amnesty through the laws to those who enter the country illegally.” When prompted by Republican Congressman Andy Biggs of Arizona who said “we’re not talking about who passes laws or not, but your philosophy as the DHS Secretary, would you support amnesty?”
Mayorkas responded, “Congressman, I fully support and have for many years, legislative reform that once and for all fixes our broken immigration system…”
“So I take it that you won’t make that statement now…” said Biggs.
“No I will, if you’ll allow me” Mayorkas said, “and it involves a path to citizenship for those who have been in this country for many years, who have contributed to the wellbeing of our country.”
“The answer is you would support amnesty of some kind” Biggs said of his response.
