According to a report, at least 1.5 million illegal immigrants identified as “getaways” crossed the border during the Biden administration.
The term refers to the estimated number of illegal immigrants who entered the country and were not apprehended, which reached 530,000 in fiscal year 2023 with four months remaining, the New York Post reported. This is in addition to the estimated 600,000 “getaways” from 2022 and 389,000 from 2021.

The tally of Biden administration “getaways” tops 1.5 million, nearly four times the 415,000 estimated in the last three years of the Trump administration.
The total for fiscal year 2023 is expected to increase after the expiration of Title 42 of the COVID-19 Contingency Policy, which allowed the Biden administration to refuse migrants at the border in order to prevent the spread of COVID.

The policy expired on Thursday after Customs and Border Patrol apprehended more than 10,000 migrants a day from Monday to Wednesday. Another 15,000 migrants were apprehended over the weekend.
The Texas Department of Public Safety launched an operation with the Texas National Guard in December to track down “getaways” with tracker dogs and drone operators.

The Biden administration planned to release detained migrants who had not yet received a court date if detention centers reached capacity, but a federal judge blocked that plan on Thursday. Two days later, the same judge denied the administration’s request to stay the temporary restraining order blocking the releases.
