Team Biden has released 50,000 illegal immigrants into the country without even giving them a court date. And — surprise, surprise — just 13 percent have reported as required to Immigration and Customs Enforcement on reaching their destinations. Yet the administration continues its catch-and-release policy, with 7,300 migrants in the Rio Grande Valley alone let go without notices to appear in the past week. President Joe Biden restored the old “catch and release” policy of releasing many illegal immigrants while telling them to later check in with the feds — simply hoping they’ll comply to seek permission to work. Oops: Only 6,700 of the 50,000 who arrived between mid-March and mid-July did so, Axios reports, citing Homeland Security data. About 27,000 migrants are still within their 60-day window to report. But 16,000 have let the deadline lapse without contacting ICE. These are people who entered the United States illegally, after all. Why think they’ll start honoring the law once they’ve made it in? DHS spokeswoman Meira Bernstein told Axios, “Those who do not report, like anyone who is in our country without legal status, are subject to removal by ICE.”
