Newly released data from Homeland Security show roughly 50,000 illegal immigrants have disappeared into the United States after they failed to report to an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office between March and August of this past year.
When migrants are released into the United States, they are issued Notices to Report, which requires them to report to an ICE office within 60 days. The Biden administration began using such notices “in March as a result of a dramatic spike in migrant apprehensions at the southern border in the initial days of the administration” reports Fox News.
Biden’s administration used this process instead of what was previously done, which were Notices to Appear (NTA) which gave migrants specific dates and times for their immigration hearing.
The Department of Homeland Security disclosed in a letter to Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) that that of 104,171 Notices to Report issued to migrants, 47,705 failed to report within the allotted timeframe between March and August.
“An additional 6,607 had not checked in with ICE and were still within the 60-day period, while 49,859 did check in within the 60-day period” reports Fox News which adds “the numbers provided to Johnson do not include beyond September, and so do not include the Haitian migrant surge in Del Rio – which say many Haitians being released into the U.S. with an NTR.”
The Department of Homeland Security data also revealed that between March 21 and December 5, ICE had issued 50,683 NTAs to migrants who had initially been released with an NTR.

NYC Mayor Adams’ budget cuts slash total number of police and education funds
“No city should be left to handle a national humanitarian crisis largely on its own, and without the significant and timely support we need from Washington, D.C., today’s budget will only be the beginning,” said New York City Democratic Mayor Eric Adams about his decision to make budget cuts as a result of the overwhelming migrant crisis.
However, those who will suffer from budget cuts to the city’s services to offset the cost of dealing with the ever-increasing number of migrants are those that are in place to make the city better.
“The cuts will see police freeze hiring and bring the total number of police officers below 30,000. It would further slash the education budget by $1 billion over two years and affect a litany of other agencies” reports Just The News.
Albeit, Adams admitted: “In all my time in government, this is probably one of the most painful exercises I’ve gone through.” More than 110,000 migrants have arrived in New York City over the past year, including roughly 13,000 sent from Texas by GOP Governor Greg Abbott as part of his ongoing bussing plan to send new arrivals to the U.S. to sanctuary cities.
However, similar to other leaders of sanctuary cities, Adams is unwilling to put his money where his mouth is. In September, Adams warned that the crisis would “destroy New York City” and begged the federal government to pay for his mess.
“I’m gonna tell you something, New Yorkers, never in my life have I had a problem that I didn’t see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this,” Adams said at the time. “The federal government needs to do its job. We need the federal government, the Congress members, the Senate and the president to do their job: close the borders,” said Adams’ advisor Ingrid Lewis Martin insisted in early October. “And until you close the borders, you need to come on with a full-on decompression strategy where you can take all of our migrants and move them through our 50 states.”
