Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sen. James Lankford are negotiating an immigration deal to expand legal immigration to the U.S. by 50,000 green cards annually and expedite work permits for illegal aliens.

This comes as President Biden’s administration has overseen record levels of illegal immigration, with a recent report indicating that about 860,000 illegal aliens successfully crossed the border in fiscal year 2023, outnumbering all illegal alien apprehensions at the border in fiscal year 2019.

Senator Josh Hawley has called for transparency regarding these “got-away” immigrants, emphasizing the need for full accounting of the southern border crisis.

“These ‘got-aways’ outnumber the combined populations of Kansas City and St. Louis, the two largest cities in Missouri,” Hawley wrote.

“At the very least, you owe the American people full transparency into what your Department knows about illegal immigrants who have entered our nation without being stopped or tracked.”

“It is abundantly clear that the longer you remain in office, the worse the crisis at our southern border becomes. The yearly number of got-aways has increased dramatically under your watch, up from nearly 600,000 in fiscal year 2022 and more than double the 389,515 in fiscal year 2021. All told, nearly 2 million illegal immigrants have successfully evaded border officials during the Biden Administration,” he wrote.

“Furthermore, though your Department still has not yet released official numbers, border officials report that they encountered more than 300,000 illegal immigrants at the southern border last month—which would be an all-time high. These unprecedented figures underscore the need for you to be fully transparent about your Department’s own accounting of the southern border crisis.”

“How many of those ‘got-aways’ are criminals, drug smugglers, or terrorists? By definition, there’s no way to know — until it’s too late,” Andrew R. Arthur wrote.

The report claims that Biden’s DHS has welcomed about 6.2 million illegal aliens to the U.S. since late January 2021.
