Political Bullsh!t Under Biden admin, number of migrant families enrolled in alternatives to detention sees record jump

“The latest data shows there are 150,755 migrant families and single individuals currently being monitored by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement under the Alternatives to Detention (ATD) program, according to Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) of Syracuse University,” the report said. TRAC researcher Austin Kocher told Border Report that it’s the highest number recorded in more than 15 years. “Alternatives to Detention is often considered preferable for immigrants, because being held in detention creates barriers to procedural justice, such as making it more difficult to obtain legal counsel,” he said in the report. “ATD is also cheaper for the government than detention.”
