Over 584,000 Foreigners Overstayed Their Visas: DHS
By Zachary Stieber

The number of illegal immigrants that ICE was holding in detention has dropped since May, hitting 20,623 on Dec. 19, 2021, according to Syracuse University’s Transactional Research Access Clearinghouse. The Biden administration has been releasing tens of thousands of immigrants without court dates, an unusual arrangement, and has let thousands go without receiving COVID-19 testing. For the first time, the number of immigrants being monitored through ICE’s new Alternatives to Detention programs exceeded 150,000 in December, Syracuse University said. The programs feature immigrants being allowed to go free while being monitored through various technologies like ankle bracelets.
