Biden admin’s horrifying laziness allows hundreds of thousands of illegals to walk free

Joe Biden’s border crisis is the worst this nation has ever seen. And instead of fixing things, the Left is only making things worse.

And now, the Biden administration’s horrifying laziness has allowed hundreds of thousands of illegals to walk free.

Judges dismissed thousands of deportation cases because the Biden administration neglected to file court documents in them.

Each unlawful immigrant receives a Notice to Appear (NTA), which is filed in court by the Department of Homeland Security in order to enforce immigration laws.

However, according to new data acquired by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, or TRAC, an academic organization, DHS never filed the actual paper with the court in about 200,000 cases when NTAs were issued to immigrants at the border.

Since fiscal year 2021, more than half of the deportation cases in immigration courts in immigration hotspots like Houston, Texas, and Miami, Florida, have been dropped for that reason.

The group, affiliated with Syracuse, said, “These large numbers of dismissals and what then happens raise serious concerns.”

Following President Joe Biden’s inauguration, the percentage of immigration cases that were dismissed increased dramatically, from 0.1% in 2017 and 1.2% in 2019 to 10.6% in 2021.

Although the percentage of cases dismissed has decreased after that peak, the actual number of dismissals in 2022 and 2023 was significantly larger than at any previous time due to the record-high number of unlawful border-crossers.

The government can easily bring a second case against the foreigner if the first is dropped due to lack of documents by the scheduled court date.

However, TRAC was able to determine that, in almost 75% of cases, DHS never bothered to do so.

That hasn’t changed throughout Biden’s presidency.

Furthermore, in certain situations, an apparent clerical error is almost never fixed: just 2% of the time, the DHS in Baltimore attempted to deport the alien again.

TRAC writes, “This suggests that in three-quarters of these 200,000 cases, the immigrant was effectively left in legal limbo without any way to pursue asylum or other means of relief.”

TRAC’s data experts have long lamented the lack of transparency and propensity of immigration agencies to provide inaccurate or partial data.

“No information to our knowledge has been publicly released by DHS on why and where these problems occur,” said TRAC.

“Troubling is the almost total lack of transparency on where and why these DHS failures occurred. Equally troubling is the lack of solid information on what happened to these many immigrants when DHS never rectified its failure by reissuing and filing new NTAs to restart their Court cases.”

According to a previous investigation by TRAC, the Biden administration was able to “falsely report that its asylum backlog had been reduced this past year when in fact it had markedly grown” because 50,000 asylum papers had suddenly vanished.

Due to reserved but unused docket time, the Biden administration’s reluctance to file paperwork has the effect of clogging immigration courts.

The president’s claim that he cannot take tough measures against illegal immigration until Congress enacts new legislation is refuted by the sharp shift in immigration statistics that coincides with Biden’s inauguration.

How much longer will Biden force America to crumble on the oppression of his failed policies?
