(FeaturedNews.com) – According to a recent report by NBC News, there were approximately 6000,000 migrants who have been released into the U.S. after crossing the U.S.-Mexico border since March 2021. More importantly, none of these immigrants have been charged or have an impending court date to attend. The report also clearly shows that many of these immigrants have officially left the program and there is no one who is currently tracking them.
The practice of catch and release became all the more common as the number of people who were looking to cross the border was overwhelming. However, this practice is still not following the old protocol which demands that migrants should first be given a court date by Customs and Border Protection after being apprehended at the border.
The lack of documentation for these released migrants has also meant in the U.S. many are gearing up to prepare for the immigration crisis being caused by all of these people entering the country. Immigration lawyers also appear to be confused when new clients enter their offices seeking full legal residency as they do not have the necessary documents to proceed with any substantial migration case. This is wide because the protocol has not been followed during the early stages of the catch-and-release policy.
Karlyn Kurichety, legal director of Al Otro Lado, a migrant advocacy organization, has stated that many of the people who have entered the country want legal stability, and yet because of the current policies followed these immigrants appear to be stuck in a constant state of limbo.
