(RepublicanWire.org) – Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) updated its data Wednesday after it had reported massive discrepancies between what the agency was disclosing to attendees of a closed-door event and what it was telling the public.

ICE underreported the number of illegal immigrants released from custody without any tracking technology by more than 18,000%, according to an internal document given to attendees of an agency seminar that took place Thursday. ICE disclosed to the event’s attendees that there are 49,459 illegal immigrants that aren’t surveilled with tracking technology as of Nov. 14, while its own website at the time said there were 266 as of Nov. 19.

ICE massively misreported the number of illegal immigrants being tracked with GPS technology by nearly 600%. ICE shared with those attending Thursday’s event that 8,118 illegal immigrants are monitored with GPS tracking as of Nov. 14, but ICE’s website at the time said that there are 56,805 illegal immigrants monitored using GPS as of Nov. 19.

ICE’s website was updated Wednesday to say that 7,905 illegal immigrants are monitored using GPS tracking and that 49,166 have no electronic monitoring.

A person familiar with the ICE program for electronic monitoring, known as “Alternatives to Detention,” recently confirmed the accuracy of the number disclosed to event participants in the document.

Former ICE Chief of Staff Jon Feere believes the agency’s altering of data is part of an anti-immigration enforcement agenda.

“The Biden administration has shown repeatedly that it’s willing to mislead the public about the impact of their dangerous, anti-enforcement agenda. They’ve concealed data previously published by ICE and haven’t had a press conference at ICE headquarters. I have to believe it’s because they know what they’re doing is indefensible,” Feere responded.

The Biden administration has attempted to limit ICE’s scope of enforcement by previously seeking a 100-day moratorium on deportations and attempting to limit arrests to those who pose risks to national security, border security and public safety.

The administration has taken such actions amid record surges of illegal migration at the southern border, with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) encountering more than 2.3 million migrants in fiscal year 2022 and more than 230,000 in October.

“This latest data controversy is very serious and every real journalist should be demanding answers and greater access to Biden’s immigration appointees. It’s certainly notable that a lot of news outlets in D.C. are okay with being ignored — it may even be instructive for future administrations,” Feere said.

(RepublicanWire.org) – On the morning of Oct. 28th, police arrived at the Pelosi home in San Francisco after 2 AM.  They reportedly arrived on a wellness check, not a robbery.  When the door opened the police reportedly saw Paul Pelosi and David DePape.  The police did nothing until DePape allegedly pulled a hammer from the much older Pelosi and allegedly hit Pelosi on the head.

The story is full of holes.  How did DePape get near the house without the cameras, security, police, and motion detectors locating him and stopping him?  How did DePape enter the house without someone notifying the Pelosis?   How did he know to go upstairs to see Paul Pelosi?  Why did Paul Pelosi answer the door and then walk back to his attacker?

For some reason, the camera footage from the house has not been released.  Is this because it doesn’t match the narrative created by the FBI?  Also, where is the camera footage from the police?  Why is this not being released?

We heard that DePape was in the hospital as recently as Monday, along with Paul Pelosi.  What are his injuries?  Why don’t we know? 

The media wasn’t allowed to be at the court hearing where DePape reportedly pled not guilty.   No one has even seen DePape since this incident.

And now this…

ICE officials are not allowed to talk to illegal alien David DePape.  They are being blocked by California officials.

Jon Feere, a former senior advisor, COS, Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE), posted this on his Twitter account on Sunday.

FYI: Sources in ICE tell me that San Francisco is not allowing officers to interview Paul Pelosi’s attacker, David DePape; i.e., Dems and SFPD are siding with the alleged attacker. ICE routinely interviews jailed aliens to determine appropriate next steps, background, etc.

(RepublicanWire.org) – A federal judge has blocked the Biden administration from imposing limitations on Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrests, detentions, and removals.

District Judge Michael Newman of the Southern District of Ohio ruled Tuesday in favor of the Republican attorneys general of Arizona, Montana, and Ohio, issuing a preliminary injunction prohibiting President Joe Biden from imposing new guidelines for laws regarding consequences for illegal immigration.

“The States sue because they believe DHS skirted Congress’s immigration enforcement mandates when it issued a policy that prioritizes certain high-risk noncitizens for apprehension and removal,” Newman wrote in his ruling. “DHS contends that seemingly mandatory statutes must be read flexibly to permit efficient law enforcement.”

“At bottom, that is what this dispute is about: can the Executive displace clear congressional command in the name of resource allocation and enforcement goals? Here, the answer is no,” Newman wrote.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen, and Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost sued the Biden administration in November 2021 over the policy revision, which they said “dramatically ties the hands of immigration officers, halting nearly all deportations.”

That month, the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees ICE, issued a permanent guidance to limit whom ICE could arrest and thus remove from the country. The guidance established that ICE officers had to obtain permission to arrest illegal immigrants who had not been convicted of an aggravated felony, were not affiliated with a gang or terrorist network, or had illegally entered the U. S. before November 2020.
