Border Patrol Audit Shows Crucial Step Being Skipped, Harming Americans and Migrants Alike

A recent report issued by the Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General (DHS OIG) contains alarming data about the U.S. Border Patrol’s mishandling of alien personal data during the current border crisis. Coverage on the report leaves out the practical effects of this mishandling, which threatens to leave potentially hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens untraceable and in legal limbo.

In a sample of the nearly 400,000 illegal aliens released into the U.S. during a six-month period in 2021, more than one-fourth were not issued alien registration numbers (A-numbers). These numbers are tied to individual files with biographical information and are essential for virtually every government function related to migration. . . .

FAIR Analysis: 4.9 Million Illegal Aliens Have Crossed our Borders Since President Biden Took Office

Earlier this month, President Biden took credit for the July inflation rate being “only” 8.5 percent. Now that July border numbers are finally public, the White House may take credit for the fact that “only” 199,976 illegal aliens crossed our border, down from 207,416 in June. A minor drop in border encounters is not encouraging. Traditionally, numbers drop in the hottest summer months, and last month’s figures actually represent a 325 percent increase over the average number of July apprehensions under the Trump administration. . . .

Leftist Elites: Illegal Aliens For Thee, Not For Me

The epitome of vapid, elite leftism was on display in the nation’s capital earlier this month when Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser complained that illegal aliens being bussed from Texas are overwhelming her city, and that Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott may have “tricked” them into coming to the nation’s capital.

Since earlier this year, Abbott and Republican Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey have been bussing illegal aliens imported into the country by the Biden administration to Washington, D.C., so the powers that be can get a first-hand look at the crisis they’ve created. Sanctuary city mayors like Bowser have been coldly indifferent to the suffering of border states as they endured the consequences of Biden’s disastrous immigration agenda. Now that a small amount of that burden has landed in their fiefdoms, they are livid. . . . Read more about Leftist Elites: Illegal Aliens For Thee, Not For Me
