- ICE will send notices to appear to some 78,000 undocumented immigrants in the United States this week.
- Notifications will be sent to those immigrants who did not receive this document when they entered the country.
- Whoever fails to comply with the notice will face a deportation order.
Attention immigrants! Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will begin sending appearance notices this week to thousands of migrants. This applies to those who did not receive this notice when they entered the United States without documents, confirmed CBS news on Monday.
The ICE agency confirmed to the network that it will begin sending the documents to some 78,000 undocumented people who did not receive those notifications due to the flood of migrants that the border authorities have had to process in recent months.
Who will receive the notification from ICE?
The new measure was dubbed Operation Horizon. In a statement sent to CBS News, ICE said it “intends to initiate removal proceedings” against those undocumented persons who were released on parole by agents of the Office of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) without being given a “notice to appear” (NTA).
The notice to appear instructs the undocumented person to appear in front of immigration authorities to continue processing their case. Anyone who fails to comply with the notice will face a deportation order, Agencia EFE reported. Filed Under: Immigrants Watching for ICE Notifications.
What happens if I get the order and don’t show up?
CBP officers normally provide undocumented immigrants who are released in the U.S. with notices to appear. However, as of March, thousands were released with just an instruction to report to an ICE office within 60 days to continue processing, but without an explicit date.
Now ICE will notify about 78,000 immigrants that they are required to report to the ICE field office closest to their residence. There they will be processed using information collected by CBP when they entered. Filed Under: Immigrants Watching for ICE Notifications.
What happens when they appear?
At these appointments, ICE will take photos, collect fingerprints, review case files, and determine whether the migrants will need ankle bracelets or will be enrolled in other programs designed to ensure compliance with filing requirements, the agency said to CBS.
In fiscal year 2021, which ended on September 30, US border authorities made more than 1.7 million arrests. However, more than ONE million people were expelled from the country almost immediately due to the fact that a health measure called Title 42 is in force, which allows the vast majority of migrants and asylum seekers who arrive in the country to be returned to Mexico using the risk of Covid-19 as a reason.
