DHS Loses Track of Undocumented Immigrants at Border

The Biden admin lost track of possibly 237,000 immigrants in the U.S. in the past year. This occurred after the U.S. Customs and Border Protection failed to record the United States addresses of nearly one-third of all illegal border crossers last year. Due to the massive influx of illegal immigrants at the Mexican border in 2021, agents became very overwhelmed and resorted to insufficient methods of detailed records. Some even admitted to recording information on whiteboards. Many of these immigrants that crossed the border between the months of March and June 2021 did not appear at their mandatory Immigration and Customs Enforcement appointment. The deficiencies of the CBP will cause a domino effect, delaying the department of homeland security from uniting children with their families. Their failure to effectively track the immigrants will also cause migrants to remain in DHS custody way past legal time limits. The border policies have evidently become more relaxed with the takeover of the Biden administration. This disorganization and lack of accountability is already proving to be a problem as immigrants are struggling and cannot receive assistance. It is critical that DHS improves its abilities to track the high number of illegal immigrants crossing the border.
