Today, the Biden Administration–via new court filings in Texas v. Biden–reported numbers for April that confirm that they have cumulatively released nearly one million illegal aliens into the United States in a mere 16 months. This number does not account for unaccompanied alien children who are smuggled into the United States and released to family members (many of whom are illegal, themselves), nor does it account for illegal aliens who evaded apprehension or detection.
Today’s filing reflects the shocking number of illegal aliens the Biden Administration has encountered at the southwest border and then released into the United States in April. In only the month of April, DHS encountered a total of 234,088 illegal aliens along the southwest border. Of those, the Biden Administration released into the United States 117,989 illegal aliens. In other words–not counting the unaccompanied alien children separately released and gotaways–illegal aliens now have a greater than 50% chance of being released into the United States when they illegally enter and are encountered by CBP.
Compiling the cumulative data from the government’s filings in Texas v. Biden, the Biden Administration has reported releasing over 950,000 illegal aliens since January 20, 2021. Busloads and planes filled with illegal aliens, who have been shipped around the country and released into communities in the dead of night, were all in government custody. They should have been promptly returned to their home countries, detained for illegally entering, or required to remain in Mexico under the MPP program. Instead, today’s numbers show that the Biden Administration, demonstrating its commitment to open borders and lawlessness, is radically implementing a release-first policy.
If you were to place all the illegal aliens the Biden Administration released into one city, it would be the twelfth largest city in the United States, on par with Fort Worth, Texas, ahead of cities like Charlotte, San Francisco, Indianapolis, Denver, and Boston. If put together all in one sta…
