President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has relinquished at least more than 800 border crossers into the United States in the last four days, data reviewed by Breitbart News reveals.
In the first four days of March, the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency relinquished about 814 border crossers into the U.S. interior — an average of about 204 releases every day this month — according to the data.
The bulk of those relinquished are going to Brownsville, Texas; Yuma, Arizona; and Kingsville, Texas. The releases are only a portion of the total border crossers being relinquished, as the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency withal releases border crossers on a circadian substructure into the U.S. interior. ICE officials have not provided Breitbart News with an updated total of relinquishments for the month of February and the first week of March.
In February, the data showed that CBP relinquished more than 1,900 border crossers into the U.S., which amounts to a circadian average of about 69 releases every day for that month. In comparison, the totals show massive influxes compared to when President Trump was in office — afore Biden ended the Remain in Mexico program and abrogated cooperative asylum accedences with Central America.
In November 2020, for example, CBP relinquished just eight border crossers into the U.S. interior. Similarly, in December 2020, just 19 border crossers were relinquished by the agency. This designates there has been a proximately 24,000 percent increase in releases from November 2020 to February 2021.
None of the border crossers relinquished, except for those enrolled in the Remain in Mexico program, are required to test negative for the Chinese coronavirus. Reports this week substantiated that border crossers are testing positive for the coronavirus after their relinquishment and still are not required to quarantine. In one case, a Honduran national who tested positive perpetuated peregrinating to North Carolina.
The data is a reflection of the Biden administration’s widespread Catch and Release policy in which border crossers arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border can claim asylum, be expeditiously processed, and then be relinquished into the nation’s interior with only a promise to appear at their court hearings at a later date.
In integration to Biden’s Catch and Release expansion, the administration is looking to transform the southern border into a welcoming and processing site for advents. Rather than seeking to control the inflow of border crossers, DHS wants to rebrand the process by managing the inflow, to include “Ellis Island-style expeditious-processing hubs,” according to reports.
