An internal document from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement revealed that the organization is underreporting the number of illegal immigrants released into the US without any tracking technology by more than 18,000%.
ICE distributed the document to raise awareness internally about their “Alternatives to Detention” program. The program was put in place in 2004 in an effort to monitor illegal immigrants with ankle bracelets and cell phones as they wait for their court date to determine citizenship.
According to the Daily Caller, there are 49,459 untracked and unmonitored illegal aliens in America. This figure is vastly different than the estimate on the ICE website, which claims there are only 266 untracked migrants.
“The Biden administration is hostile to transparency, and when it does publish data, it refuses to respond to media inquiries regarding significant discrepancies like this,” a former ICE official with knowledge of the Alternatives to Detention program said, confirming the figure was underreported.
