Joe Biden Releases More Than 8.3K 'Remain in Mexico' Migrants into U.S.
By John Binder

Biden announced in February that his Department of Homeland Security (DHS), with the help of the United Nations, would start releasing about 25,600 migrants enrolled in the program into the U.S. interior. Breitbart News exclusively reported that the migrants are being released in Brownsville and El Paso, Texas, as well as San Diego, California. The latest data compiled by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University reveals that a total of 8,387 migrants enrolled in Remain in Mexico have been released into the U.S. interior by the end of last month. As of the end of April, nearly 20,000 migrants enrolled in Remain in Mexico are still waiting to be released into the U.S. interior by the Biden administration. Most of the migrants, as Breitbart News reported, are traveling to major cities in Florida, Texas, California, and Virginia. For instance, nearly 1,800 of the migrants have gone to Miami, Florida, while more than 808 have headed to Orlando, Florida, and more than 440 have gone to Dallas, Texas. Remain in Mexico migrants are only a fraction of the total number of migrants and border crossers that the Biden administration is facilitating into the U.S. interior.
