47,000 Illegal Immigrants Released Into the US

Feb 12, 2022
Immigration Reform

This is outrageous. According to the Department of Homeland Security, more than 47,000 illegal immigrants have been released into communities across the country after failing to check in with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. I don’t need to tell you how dangerous this is. 

The absolute failure in leadership that allowed this to happen jeopardizes our safety and national security at a time when violent crime is surging all across America. The American people deserve answers, which is why I sent a letter to the Biden administration last week in order to get to the bottom of this catastrophe. 

Since taking office, President Biden has worked harder to open the southern border than he has to secure it. Construction of the border wall has stopped. Illegal crossings are at a record high. And now this. You can rest assured that I will do everything I can to hold this administration accountable for its failures and secure our border!
