According to a new Inspector General report, DHS has lost track of potentially hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who crossed into the U.S. over the past year and subsequently failed to turn themselves into ICE once reaching their destination.
The number of illegal alien encounters decreased slightly in June 2022 compared to May. However, the fiscal-year-to-date illegal alien encounter total has already surpassed the total from the entire FY21.
According to an internal DHS memo obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, the Biden Admin. drastically reduced alien prosecutions by nearly 80% during the last fiscal year (2021) - despite a record-breaking border surge.
Democrats in the House of Representatives are hoping to add immigration amendments to a defense authorization bill that would grant permanent residency to adult children of temporary workers and would also exempt certain individuals with STEM degrees from numerical limits.
