ICE Struggles to Track Unvetted Illegal Immigrants Under Biden Administration

ICE Admits Challenges in Tracking Unvetted Illegal Immigrants Under Biden Administration

Recently, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) made a concerning acknowledgment about the millions of unvetted illegal immigrants entering the United States during President Joe Biden’s time in office.

Acting ICE Director Patrick Lechleitner shared that the Department of Homeland Security often lacks information about the identities of illegal aliens released into the U.S. He noted the near-impossibility for agents to keep track of every single illegal immigrant crossing the southern border, raising concerns about potential threats to national security. 


Specifically, Lechleitner was questioned about eight ISIS-associated undocumented aliens apprehended at the southern border. He explained the challenges ICE faces in properly vetting the large number of illegal immigrants, despite background checks.

Lechleitner emphasized the significant workload for ICE agents, with one agent responsible for thousands of illegal immigrants. He compared the situation to a probation officer overseeing a vast number of individuals, stressing the impracticality of keeping track of everyone who enters the country illegally.

These comments come following reports about a Border Patrol memo instructing agents to release illegal immigrants apprehended in the San Diego corridor into the U.S. and categorize them based on deportation difficulty.

Since President Biden took office, over 17 million illegal aliens have entered the country, raising concerns about potential threats posed to American society and communities. The challenges faced by ICE highlight the need for increased resources and support to address the overwhelming number of illegal immigrants entering the United States.
