ICE Released 218,400 Migrant “Family Members”

New data obtained by the Washington Examiner reveals that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement released some 218,400 illegal immigrant “family members” into the United States between December 21, 2018, and July 28 of this year. Of course, many members of that nearly quarter million-strong number may just been unrelated adults traveling with children and benefitting from America’s generous asylum policies and the politics of overcrowded facilities.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

The federal Homeland Security agency tasked with removing people illegally present in the country has released a couple hundred thousand immigrant families into the interior of the United States since late December, according to data obtained by the Washington Examiner. Those let loose will not be subject to deportation, at least not until after a hearing they are supposed to attend that is years away.

A total 218,400 people who either illegally entered the country or showed up without proper documentation at a port of entry along the southwest border were let go from Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody and set free in the U.S. between Dec. 21, 2018 through July 28.

All of those released were family units, which means each person arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border with a child or parent. Adults sometimes travel with children they are unrelated to and claim to be a family.
