WASHINGTON — Last week, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), Ranking Member of the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, sent a letter to Alejandro Mayorkas, the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), demanding information regarding the number of illegal immigrants released into American communities and how many illegal immigrants have been dispersed into the U.S. with a notices to appear, notices to report, and via parole.
“Media reports indicate that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is not just releasing illegal aliens into border towns after CBP processing, but rather transporting illegal aliens from the border to cities within the interior of the United States,” the senator wrote. “It also appears that ICE might not be properly assessing these illegal aliens before releasing them into the interior of the U.S. If true, ICE’s reported actions could threaten the safety and security of all Americans.”
Also last week the senator held a roundtable on the border crisis with former and current law enforcement experts and victims of the Biden administration’s failed border policies.
