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.

Mexico gives 3,000 travel permits for migrants to ‘travel freely’ towards U.S. border
Instead of having some sort of immigration system in place, Mexico is allowing nearly 3,000 migrants to head straight through to the United States border. A migrant caravan arrived at Mexico’s southern border on Friday, and “rather than trying to stop the group, authorities issued permits and allowed them to continue north in a fragmented manner” reports Breitbart.
The travel permits were issued by Mexico’s National Immigration Institute (INM) which give the migrants “30 days to travel freely through the country.” According to INM, the Huixtla, Chiapas office handed out the permits in order to disrupt the caravan.
Breitbart writes: “The move by Mexico’s INM is a direct contrast to prior approaches dating back to the Trump era, where authorities would meet caravans with riot shields and batons.” As recently as last year, human rights activists accused INM agents of using excessive force against migrants.
Last September, “photographs and videos circulated on social media capturing numerous violent clashes” between migrants ad INM, reported Breitbart. “In one, a video shows an INM agent kicking a migrant on the ground, which led to the suspension of two agents and an ongoing investigation into police brutality.”
Human rights activists and liberal media personalities bashed Mexico’s government, claiming President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is doing the bidding of the U.S. by stopping the caravans.
