Report: ‘At Least 160,000 Illegal Immigrants’ Have Been Released Into U.S. Since March

Fox News Reporter Bill Melugin out of Los Angeles has been covering the border crisis and tweeted bombshell documents from Border Patrol unearthing the number of illegal immigrants the Biden administration has actually let through the U.S. borders.

Melugin tweeted a copy of the document with the caption “NEW/THREAD: According to Border Patrol documents provided by a source, the federal gov has released over 70,000 illegal immigrants into the U.S. since August 6, including 31,977 released via parole (temp legal status, eligible for work permits). 94,570 released via NTR since 3/20.”

Fox News writes the documents show how large of numbers of immigrants are being released into the U.S. “with little to no oversight, supervision or immediate risk of deportation.” In particular, Biden’s use of “parole” to release migrants is far overreaching.

Former Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott told Fox News the administration is abusing its parole authority. Scott, who worked under Biden, said typically only a handful of parole cases are granted. Biden has released 32,000 under parole.

“As a field chief, I don’t believe I ever approved more than 5 or 10 paroles in a year,” he said. “When I did, I ensured that the alien was monitored continuously and was detained or removed as soon as the circumstances allowed.”

By law and regulation a parole shall only be granted on a case by case basis and only for significant humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit. Neither of these appear to apply to the current situation,” said Scott, adding that the number of paroles brings into question the review and approval process.

Fox News explains parole allows the migrants a form of legal status and the ability to apply for work permits.  Federal law intends the use for parole to be on a case-by-case basis for “urgent humanitarian purposes” and “significant public benefit.”

The 94,570 released via NTR, or a ‘notice to report’ are only required to check in with an ICE office when they get to their final destination, which could be anywhere in the country. “Those who check-in are not deported or detained as their immigration proceedings move forward,” writes Fox News.

DHS Secretary Mayorkas Says We Cannot Remove ‘11 Million Undocumented Individuals’ Unlawfully in U.S.

Troubling details were unearthed during the questioning of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas by the Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Chuck Grassley (R-IA). Grassley asked Mayorkas about a DHS memo from September 30 which reads: “The fact an individual is a removable noncitizen will not alone be the basis of an enforcement action against them.”

“Does that reasoning apply to the [1.2] million illegal immigrants who have received due process and been given a final order of removal by an immigration judge?” Grassley asked Mayorkas.

“We cannot remove 1.2 million individuals, nor can we remove more than 11 million undocumented individuals, individuals who are unlawfully present in the United States, who might not have final orders of removal” Mayorkas answered.

Mayorkas also stated that he had issued the due process policy after drawing on “tremendous experience not only as a member of the Department of Homeland Security but as a federal prosecutor.”

Grassley pressed Mayorkas, asking, “should any of them be removed?”

“Of course,” Mayorkas said. “I do believe that individuals who pose a public safety threat, who pose a national security threat, who pose a border security threat, should be removed, and we should be smart and effective in our use of resources, and we should focus on the well-being of our communities and prioritize individuals for removal.”

In his opening statements, Grassley addressed Mayorkas and stated, “When you allow the ACLU and open-borders immigration activists rather than career law enforcement professionals to dictate the terms of your immigration and border policies, then you shouldn’t be surprised when record-shattering numbers of people start showing up at the border to take advantage of that.”

Grassley continued, “When you run DHS like it’s an ‘Abolish ICE’ fan club, you shouldn’t be surprised when you have an illegal immigration crisis on your hands.”
