The Department of Homeland Security admitted it does not track illegal immigrants after they are released from federal custody into the interior of the United States, newly uncovered emails between DHS officials and journalists show.

The emails, obtained by the watchdog group Protect the Public’s Trust in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, also show that DHS admits that some of the illegals who are placed on buses are getting off at points of their choice and not staying on until the intended destination.

In one email, a DHS official told a Washington Post reporter off the record that he could not say how many immigrants are settling in Northern states via border state busing programs because the agency does not track those released from their custody

Michael Chamberlain, the director of Protect the Public’s Trust, said: “DHS attempts to claim they are not responsible for the crisis at the border and lack any means to solve the fast-developing disaster. At the same time, they admit to friendly members of the media off the record that they fail to perform even the most basic of functions.

”The Biden Administration came into office promising a return to normalcy, unprecedented transparency, and respect for the rule of law. These documents provide further evidence that, when it comes to our borders, they are 0-for-3,” Chamberlain added.
