The Biden administration’s ICE has let a record number of illegal immigrants loose in America with GPS monitoring devices. The Daily Caller’s Jennie Taer reports:
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has released a record number of illegal migrants with tracking devices and phones, according to new agency data.
As of Sept. 24, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) had 316,700 illegal migrants enrolled in what is known as “Alternatives to Detention,” which uses a facial recognition application, GPS monitoring and telephonic reporting, according to Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), which obtains data through Freedom of Information Act requests.
The Government Accountability Office (GAO) reported in June that most participants were unenrolled before their immigration proceedings concluded, finding that about a quarter of those taken out of the program that were placed on other forms of monitoring fled. The program’s technology is costing taxpayers $361,218.08 per day, according to ICE.
In fiscal year 2021, there were 136,026 illegal migrants enrolled in the program. And, in fiscal year 2020, there were 91,793 illegal migrants enrolled in the program at the end of the year.
