    70% of Illegal Alien Families Fail to Report to Agents

    US: Immigrant Families Fail to Report to Agents

    WASHINGTON — Sep 25, 2014, 1:13 PM ET
    By ALICIA A. CALDWELL Associated Press

    FILE - In this June 26, 2014 file photo, a federal employee walks past cribs inside of the barracks for law enforcement trainees turned into immigrant detention center at the Federal Law Enforcement Center (FLETC) in Artesia, N.M. The Homeland... View Full CaptionThe Associated Press


    Tens of thousands of young families caught crossing the border illegally earlier this year subsequently failed to meet with federal immigration agents, as they were instructed, the Homeland Security Department has acknowledged privately.


    An official with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement revealed that about 70 percent of immigrant families the Obama administration had released into the U.S. never showed up weeks later for follow up appointments.


    The ICE official made the disclosure in a confidential meeting at its Washington headquarters with immigration advocates participating in a federal working group on detention and enforcement policies. The Associated Press obtained an audio recording of Wednesday's meeting and separately interviewed participants.


    On the recording obtained by the AP, the government did not specify the total number of families released into the U.S. since October. Since only a few hundred families have already been returned to their home countries and limited U.S. detention facilities can house only about 1,200 family members, the 70 percent figure suggests the government released roughly 41,000 members of immigrant families who subsequently failed to appear at federal immigration offices.


    The official, who was not identified by name on the recording obtained by the AP, also said final deportation had been ordered for at least 860 people traveling as families caught at the border since May but only 14 people had reported as ordered.


    In a statement, ICE spokeswoman Gillian Christensen did not respond to questions from the AP about the newly disclosed figures. Instead, she said the agency was committed to increasing its capacity to detain and quickly deport families who crossed the border illegally.


    The AP reported in June that the administration would not say publicly how many immigrant families from Central America caught crossing into the U.S. it had released in recent months or how many of those subsequently reported back to the government after 15 days as directed. The AP noted that senior U.S. officials directly familiar with the issue, including at the Homeland Security Department and White House, had dodged the answer on at least seven occasions over two weeks, alternately saying that they did not know the figure or didn't have it immediately at hand.


    The Homeland Security Department's public affairs office during the same period did not answer roughly a dozen requests for the figures.


    More than 66,000 immigrants traveling as families, mostly mothers and young children, have been apprehend at the border since the start of the budget year in October. Nearly 60,000 of those immigrants are from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala and cannot be immediately repatriated, so the government has been releasing them into the U.S. and telling them to report within 15 days to the nearest Immigrations and Customs Enforcement offices.


    At the meeting, the ICE official acknowledged the no-show figures while explaining the administration's decision in June to open a temporary detention center for families in Artesia, New Mexico. A second immigration jail in Texas was later converted for families and can house about 530 people. A third such detention center will open in Texas later this year.

    Before the new facility in Artesia, the government had room for fewer than 100 people at its only family detention center in Pennsylvania.


    Immigration advocates have complained that the new detention centers were punishing immigrants who ultimately may win lawful asylum claims to remain in the U.S. In the meeting, they also questioned whether immigration officials had clearly and properly instructed immigrants to meet with federal agents within 15 days.


    The ICE official said it was necessary to detain families to ensure they didn't vanish into the U.S. He encouraged advocacy groups to help find ways to ensure that immigrants reported to federal agents as ordered so the government could begin processing their cases, including any requests to remain in the U.S. legally.

    No one is surprised by this. The word is out if you get in chances are you'll be amnestied eventually and in the meantime if you keep your nose clean no one will deport you. Lawlessness on parade. Eventually these undocumented Democrats will help make our country a one party country, probably is the plan for the Democrats.

    Report: 70 Percent of Illegal Immigrant Families Released into U.S. Failed to Report

    by Caroline May 25 Sep 2014, 12:27 PM PDT
    breitbart



    About 70 percent of the tens of thousands illegal immigrant family units detained crossing the U.S./Mexico border and released into the United States have failed to fulfill their obligation to report back to immigration officials, according to a new report.

    The Associated Press reports it has obtained audio of a confidential Immigration and Customs Enforcement meeting with immigration advocates working on detention policies that occurred on Wednesday.

    On the recording, according to the AP, an ICE official revealed that about 70 percent of the illegal immigrant families detained and then released into the United States did not show up for their required appointments 15 days later with federal immigration officials.

    “Since only a few hundred families have already been returned to their home countries and limited U.S. detention facilities can house only about 1,200 family members, the 70 percent figure suggests the government released roughly 41,000 members of immigrant families who subsequently failed to appear at federal immigration offices,” the AP’s Alicia Caldwell reported Thursday.

    Caldwell further reported that the unnamed official added that 860 people in family units detained at the border had been ordered for removal but only 14 of them had reported to federal officials.

    Since October more than 66,000 family units have been detained illegally entering the United States — the vast majority of those detained have been from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. Most of them have been released into the United States.

    The influx of illegal immigrant family units occurred in conjunction with the increase in illegal immigration by unaccompanied minors, both of which have strained government resources and captured headlines. Since October more than 66,000 unaccompanied illegal immigrant minors have been detained and the vast majority have been released into the U.S.

    And when the ICE people can be confident that our narcissistic hustler of a president has no intention of actually enforcing our immigration laws, I'm guessing that it's easy to for them lie.

    Illegal Immigrants Allowed Into U.S. Now Missing: Approximately 40,000 Have Ditched Fed Check Appointments

    By Taylor Tyler | Sep 26, 2014 11:05 AM EDT


    Illegal migrants from Guatemala, deported from Phoenix, Arizona in the U.S., walk after arriving at an air force base in Guatemala City July 22, 2014. The flight transporting the illegal Guatemalan migrants arrived on Tuesday after they were sent back from the U.S., according to immigration authorities. A growing wave of families and unaccompanied minors fleeing Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras are streaming by the thousands into the United States by way of human trafficking networks through Mexico.

    About 70 percent of illegal immigrant families caught crossing the border earlier this year failed to meet with federal immigration agents after being released into the U.S., the Homeland Security Department acknowledged privately, reported the Associated Press.

    "An official with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) revealed that [tens of thousands] of immigrant families the Obama administration had released into the U.S. never showed up weeks later for follow up appointments," AP reported.

    More than 66,000 immigrants have been detained at the border since the start of October, but since 60,000 of those are from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, they cannot be immediately repatriated as done with Mexicans, therefore, "the government has been releasing them into the U.S. and telling them to report within 15 days to the nearest ICE office," said the Associated Press.

    The disclosure was revealed after AP obtained an audio recording of ICE officials speaking during a confidential meeting at its Washington headquarters with immigration advocates.

    In the recording, the government didn't say exactly how many families had been released into the U.S. since October, but the Associated Press was able to roughly estimate the number of members of immigrant families released.

    "Since only a few hundred families have already been returned to their home countries and limited U.S. detention facilities can house only about 1,200 family members, the 70 percent figure suggests the government released roughly 41,000 members of immigrant families who subsequently failed to appear at federal immigration offices."

    The Associated Press added that the Homeland Security Department "did not dispute the authenticity of this recording."

    In a statement emailed to the Associated Press Thursday afternoon, ICE spokeswoman Gillian Christensen said that the no-show rate "represents an approximate snapshot of individuals encountered beginning in May" who failed to report to ICE, adding that it's possible that some are still reporting to immigration court hearings.

    President Obama previously vowed to use his power of executive order to give amnesty to a sizable number of illegal immigrants, but with a possible constitutional crisis linked to the action along with Congressional resistance to the move - and perhaps a bit of fear that this would hinder favorable election outcomes for Democrats in November - Obama hasn't yet moved forward with his plan.

    White House aides said Obama is set to announce his new plans before summer is over.
