Two Years of Biden’s Immigration Policies
By Elizabeth Jacobs

Data obtained by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University this fall has shown that ICE has enrolled nearly 500,000 aliens subject to mandatory detention in its Alternatives to Detention (ATD) program between August 2020 and June 2022. Concerningly, the data also shows that, since 2021, ICE has drastically shortened the amount of time it monitors aliens enrolled in ATD and has ceased to monitor (or has “unenrolled”) nearly 200,000 aliens who are subject to mandatory detention under federal law.
