This week, shortly after the impeachment of DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, a chain of uncovered emails revealed that the Department of Homeland Security has not been tracking illegal immigrants after their release from federal custody.

In an off-the-record email conversation with a Washington Post reporter, a DHS official admitted he did not know how many migrants went to Northern states through the busing program because they were no longer in custody, according to Just the News.

Michael Chamberlain, the director of the Watchdog Group Protect the Public’s Trust, said the emails were “fresh proof” that the Homeland officials were aware of the consequences of their border policies, and that “they fail to perform even the most basic of functions.”

He added that the Biden administration failed to keep their promises regarding border security.

“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 said.
