Biden Administration Under Fire Over Soaring ‘Gotaways’ Amid Border Crisis

The Biden administration is facing intense scrutiny over its handling of the southern border crisis, as alarming new data reveals a staggering increase in the number of illegal immigrants evading apprehension by Border Patrol agents. Data obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request exposes a sharp rise in “gotaways,” highlighting the administration’s failure to effectively secure the border.

According to the data disclosed by Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin, over 1.6 million “gotaways” were recorded from Fiscal Year 2021 through 2023, marking a significant escalation compared to previous administrations. This surge underscores the administration’s inability to stem the flow of illegal border crossings and apprehend individuals attempting to enter the country unlawfully.

The surge in “gotaways” poses serious challenges to national security, as individuals evading detection by Border Patrol agents remain unvetted and potentially pose risks to public safety. Critics argue that the administration’s lax immigration policies have emboldened illegal border crossers and exacerbated the crisis at the southern border.

Compounding concerns is the mishandling of deportation cases by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). A recent report from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse revealed that over 200,000 deportation cases have been dismissed due to administrative errors since the start of the Biden administration.

The dismissal of deportation cases raises questions about the administration’s commitment to enforcing immigration laws and ensuring the integrity of the deportation process. Without proper adjudication of deportation cases, individuals with criminal backgrounds could evade accountability and threaten public safety.

The Biden administration’s failure to address the root causes of the border crisis has drawn condemnation from critics, who argue that decisive action is needed to restore border security and uphold immigration laws. As the crisis deepens, illegal immigration is expected to emerge as a pivotal issue in the upcoming presidential election, with voters closely scrutinizing candidates’ approaches to border security and immigration enforcement.
