Multiple former officials of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) warned the Biden administration to announce the actual numbers of illegal immigrants at the southern border before Tuesday.
If the administration fails to release the true numbers of illegal immigrants, the officials are claiming they will release it themselves.
DHS Officials Ask Biden to Release Accurate Border Numbers
Border officials who warned Biden to announce the real numbers of illegal immigrants include the former acting commissioner of CBP, Mark Morgan, acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Tom Homan, and deputy secretary of the DHS, Ken Cuccinelli.
All of the former officials suggested the Biden administration was intentionally hiding the number of illegal immigrants in September.
Likewise, the officials asserted CBP Commissioner Chris Magnus and DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas need to release all the data on illegal immigration by Tuesday or the officials will release the data themselves.

Reportedly, the Biden administration is intentionally downplaying illegal immigration these days; the actual numbers are so dangerous they can hurt Democrats’ chances in the upcoming midterm elections.
Once the elections are over, the Biden administration is expected to release the actual number of illegal immigrants.
In addition to that, the former officials noted the poor data reporting of the Biden administration is impacting border security forces, as well as average Americans who have to deal with drug smugglers and human traffickers.
Since Americans need to know the true extent of the illegal immigration, the former officials will release the actual border numbers, Cuccinelli informed Fox News.
Director Homan said in his almost 35 yrs enforcing imm law under 6 different Presidents, he’s never seen an administration lie & cover up like this one. Former border officials vow to release illegal migrant numbers by Tuesday if Biden admin won't https://t.co/7x2iTX9oVw #FoxNews

No Other President Ever Hid Border Numbers
Similarly, Morgan stated the Trump administration used to release accurate border numbers every month.
Since the inauguration of Biden, the border has been completely handed over to cartels, which are urging the incumbent administration not to release accurate numbers.
Furthermore, Homan claimed he worked in border law enforcement for 35 years under the leadership of six different presidents, but no one tried to hide the severity of the border crisis from Americans.
Homan also asserted the Biden administration is yet to release the FY21 ICE Report, which was never delayed under any previous administration.
This means the very purpose of ICE has been eliminated under the Biden administration, Homan added. He further said Americans need to know all the mess created by Biden on the US borders, so the former officials will release border numbers next week.
Since the start of Biden’s presidency, both Mayorkas and Magnus have been scrutinized by Americans, who are accusing them of promoting lawlessness in the United States.
Meanwhile, Politico reported many current officials of the Biden administration slammed Magnus for his lack of interest in controlling the border crisis.
Reportedly, Magnus often falls asleep in meetings, not to mention he does not attend many White House events in the first place.
