Today, Congressman Andy Biggs and 13 of his House colleagues sent a letter to U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland regarding the number of illegal aliens prosecuted for illegally entering the United States.
“ Nearly 2 million illegal aliens have been processed under immigration authorities since Joe Biden took office and I suspect that most of these illegal aliens have not been prosecuted by the Biden Administration given its evisceration of immigration enforcement,” said Congressman Andy Biggs.
“ The Biden Administration should be enforcing the immigration laws on our books instead of giving a free pass to those unlawfully entering our country. Not enforcing our immigration laws is one of the many reasons that we are experiencing a historic border crisis. The Biden Administration has repeatedly sent the message that our borders are open and illegal aliens will not face consequences. All of this is unacceptable.
“ Secretary Mayorkas and Attorney General must provide us with immediate answers regarding its usage of Title 8 and commit to returning law and order.”
