US President Joe Biden has released over 756,109 illegal migrants into the nation’s interior since taking office in January 2021, according to a court brief filed Thursday by the America First Legal Foundation.
That total includes the 545,000 border crossers caught and released by Customs and Border Protection, plus the 212,000 migrants nabbed then released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
That’s already more than the total number of residents of Boston, the capital of Massachusetts, Detroit, the largest city in Michigan – or the entire US capital Washington, DC. However, that number does not even include the nearly 123,000 unaccompanied minors who have been resettled across the country, or hundreds of thousands estimated to have crossed the Mexican border without being caught that year.
As the America First Legal Foundation’s brief explains, under the current rate of removal, the Department of Homeland Security would take 14.5 years just to deport the illegals it has released into the US over the preceding 13 months.
