Around 3 in 10 families apprehended for illegally entering the United States from Mexico cut off their ankle monitoring devices shortly after being released from Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody and told to show up for asylum hearings, an ICE official said Tuesday.

“Nearly 3 in 10 family units are cutting off their ankle bracelets at the beginning of the process when they’ve been released from our custody within days or weeks so they’re not even going to get to that point where they could get the final removal order,” Matthew Albence, executive associate director for ICE, testified before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.

The article goes on to state the following:

Albence said the Homeland Security Department’s inability to get all illegal immigrants released from custody and told to appear for court hearings was in part due to people ditching their ankle bracelets and disappearing into the interior of the country.

Those waiting to hear if their asylum cases are approved or denied were more likely to keep their monitors in tact and show up for court, but once their cases were denied, they were not likely to show up when a judge would then later order them deported.

“They will comply up until the benefit of complying is not there,” said Albence.

Albence said his agency lacks the money, personnel, and resources to actually go after noncriminal offenders who have been ordered deported.

“ICE has not been given resources to go out and effectuate these at-large arrests in many years,” he said.

  1. Yes, as soon as their asylum has been denied, deport them immediately. That way they won’t have time to cut their ankle bracelets and run! Problem solved!

  2. We shouldn’t have to keep track of them….with or without a bracelet…. “send ‘em back” with How-To instructions on legal entry. If and when they decide to return legally, tell them there will be a minimum $12k per person entry fee to cover all the past & current administration fees. As the old saying states: “Hit ‘em where it hurts!”

  3. Why should they even have “a day in court”. Turn them around and send them back home. If they want to come here, they need to come here legally. What U.S. Citizen whould be able to cross the border to live in Mexico, or any other country. without a permit. Why even bother with laws. Just let everyone do as they please, including walking into your house and take it over as theirs.

  4. I do not understand why they even keep them here in the first place! Shut the damn door and turn them around and send them back into Mexico with a packet of information about doing it the LEGAL way. My family came here legally years ago, We got no special treatment, had to undergo a medical exam, my Dad had to have a job, some money in his pocket, a sponsor. We got no food stamps, or medical care, no handouts nor freebies. It took our family EIGHT (8) years to become American citizens, and we have never been hyphenated citizens. We are Americans. This broken immigration system has to be fixed, and all illegals have to be rounded up and sent back to wherever they came from. Let the useless United Nations sort it out. They seem to have all the answers.

  5. If it was a felony to remove the ankle monitor a lot more of them would keep it on as then the very act of removing it would make them elible for deportation.

  6. Don’t allow these scumbag illegal alien Mexican even enter our country. Get them on a bus store they enter one foot here and ship them home. It is costing us way too much money feeding and putting them up. Then these ungratefuls complain. Deport immediately!

  7. Only about 6% of undocumented aliens show up for their deportation hearings. Often a lawyer shows up. As soon as the lawyer is told their deportation will go forward, they disappear, presumably after the lawyer contacts them with the bad news.

  8. Try putting the monitoring device around their neck; and if they attempt to remove a siren and neon paint splatters them. Or maybe just make them so that if they are tampered with, they tighten up! Sending them back immediately would solve ALL problems.
