Sources say U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Could run out of funding by October: ‘There’s no Money’

Former Chief of Staff for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) warns ‘there is no money’ for what the Biden administration is doing at the southern border. Jon Feere told the Daily Caller News Foundation “ICE does need a significant increase in enforcement resources commensurate with Biden’s influx of illegal immigration, and Congress must fund thousands more officers and detention beds, for starters.”

“The immigration courts will inevitably determine that many of these asylum claims are phony, and ICE simply doesn’t have the resources to carry out the forthcoming court ordered removals,” Feere said.

Axios reported that If the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) doesn’t step in, the agency could run out of money before October. The report cited three sources familiar with the situation. To solve the issue, DHS would have to pull funding from other organizations and allocate it to ICE.

“Instead of seeking enforcement resources, the Biden administration is putting more money into so-called Alternatives to Detention, but more specifically into what they call ‘case management’ and ‘wraparound services’ which means endless taxpayer handouts for illegal aliens,” said Feere.

DCNF reports that $100 million is expected to be pulled from the U.S. Coast Guard’s budget, while another $80 million will be allocated from existing ICE funding, according to Axios.

“There’s no money for this, so the Biden administration is transferring taxpayer dollars from other parts of DHS like the U.S. Coast Guard and FEMA. Biden’s political appointees are transforming ICE from a law enforcement agency into a social services agency without Congress’s permission,” Feere explained.

DCNF notes that since Biden took office, nearly 3 million migrants have streamed across the southern border, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) statistics. And, in May, the 239,416 migrants CBP encountered at the southern border set a DHS record.

“ICE didn’t have enough resources even before Biden opened the borders. It takes time to hire and train new ICE officers, and the new Congress will need to get that going as quickly as possible,” Feere said.

The first month of 2023 at the southern border is already looking bleak; just take a look at the numbers. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in El Paso, Texas have seized over 500 pounds of hard drugs in January alone.

Additionally, the agency apprehended 62 people they were able to identify as having outstanding arrest warrants. Among the criminals were sex offenders.

The devastating numbers are not surprising, given that in December, the El Paso mayor declared a sate of emergency “after record numbers of people were released onto city streets and sidewalks by the Biden administration” reports The Center Square.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott also “sent 400 National Guard troops to restore order and provide humanitarian assistance” adds the media outlet. Border Patrol data showed in December, 55,766 illegal foreign nationals were apprehended in the El Paso Sector.

There were also 32,632 known and recorded gotaways in December, meaning they were able to evade getting captured by law and immigration officials. law enforcement officers told The Center Square that despite the skyrocket high numbers, “these seizures and apprehensions represent a fraction of the amount of people and drugs being trafficked to the southern border between ports of entry.”
