Biden’s new plan puts single migrant adults under house arrest as ‘cheaper’ alternative to detention

The Biden administration, which has been spotted mass releasing adult illegal immigrants, has a new plan to deal with the ongoing border crisis: a plan called home curfew.

The four-month pilot program, as an alternative to detention, reportedly intends to put about 200 single adult migrants under house arrest in two cities, Baltimore and Houston, with a nationwide initiative apparently set to go into implementation later this year.

“We just don’t have the capacity. We’re not going to detain our way out of the border crisis,” a Department of Homeland Security official told Reuters.

“The Biden administration plans to ask Congress for funding to place as many as 400,000 migrants this year in alternatives to detention, which could include the home curfew initiative as well as existing programs, the DHS official said. The total number of migrants in such programs would be higher since only heads of households are enrolled,” Reuters added.

The Biden administration, which has launched a massive and inflationary spending spree in other sectors of the economy, is seeking a “cheaper alternative” to detention, according to the news outlet.

Home curfew purportedly only costs $6-$8 per day for each person as contrasted with $142/day for someone in a detention facility, many of which have been bursting at the seams. As a candidate, Biden vowed to end so-called for-profit detention centers.

Separately, authorities are reportedly allowing migrants to use Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrest warrants as IDs at airports.

“The administration has already stopped keeping migrant families in detention centers…And during the last three weeks, half of the single adults who attempted to cross the U.S.-Mexico border have been released with ankle bracelets or other tracking mechanisms,” Axios reported.

Under the home curfew plan, each would-be detainee is reportedly supposed to stay home from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. subject to certain exceptions for work and “extraordinary circumstances,” which could take in a lot of territory. Undocumented persons are not legally allowed to work in the U.S., however, again subject to certain exceptions.

Elections have consequences, in this case ushering in the open-borders, catch-and-release, deportation-averse Biden administration, with the result suggesting that the illegal immigration surge appears to show no sign of abating.

“Data released earlier this month showed US Border officials made 1.9 million arrests along the southern border last year – a new record. Of those caught, 402,000 were released into the US for further processing, according to the data,” the New York Post reported.

Thousands more, including those being transported by human traffickers, likely evaded detection. Drug smuggling across the border is also a huge problem.

Back in March 2021, former acting ICE Director Tom Homan declared that Team Biden “inherited the most secure border I’ve seen in my almost 35-year career” from President Trump.

The same unnamed DHS official told Reuters that “Current alternatives to detention, such as ankle bracelets and phone monitoring, require enrollees to notify case managers if they are leaving the state or traveling, but do not mandate home confinement.”
