According to data initially seen by the New York Post from Immigration and Customs Enforcement, there are an estimated 5.7 million non-detained migrants now living in the United States.
The American public pays for the Release and Reporting Management program described in the ICE records and intends to “at a minimum” give the migrants access to food, clothing, healthcare, and shelter.
The documents reveal that the organization has confirmed that it is responsible for keeping tabs on nearly 6 million migrants in the country.
A considerable number of the 5.7 million individuals in the present non-detained docket will receive assistance, according to RRM. There were 2.4 million fewer immigrants in ICE’s care before Biden took office.
The number of migrants in detention for processing at the border or waiting to be deported is not included in ICE’s estimate.
Referrals or direct services covering at least psychosocial services, legal aid, medical services, therapeutic services, food, clothing, public transportation information, housing, parental and educational information, and repatriation and reintegration services were listed as examples of what is meant by “community services.”
Information, stabilization, and support are all part of ICE’s mission to help program participants better fulfill their immigration obligations. Each participant will receive services tailored to their requirements, from simple referrals to substantial direct support.
The program is reaching out to commercial companies that provide “strong monitoring technology,” such as biometric voiceprint check-in calls, smartphone biometric face comparison, geolocation data, and ankle monitors to achieve its goals.
It will cost taxpayers billions if the government starts giving “welfare” benefits to migrants, according to ICE director Tom Homan.
Homan said the RRM was just an attempt by “open border proponents” to get welfare benefits for six million individuals.
According to ICE, only 194,632 migrants are tracked via GPS or other technology; therefore, the new program would replace the Alternatives to Detention effort. “Further financing” is needed for the new initiative.
