Biden Regime Gives 300,000 Illegals ‘Free’ Cellphones Costing U.S. Taxpayers $360,000 a Day

Joe Biden has given 300,000 “free” cellphones to illegals that is costing the U.S. taxpayer $361,218.08 every day.

The cellphones supposedly have tracking software in them to help the feds find the illegals after they get released inside the U.S… not that it’s working, of course.

Per the DailyWire:

More than 300,000 smartphones used to monitor illegal immigrants were given to noncitizens by the Biden administration last month, according to data collected by Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse.

Issuing such cellular devices to illegal immigrants is part of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement program called the Alternatives to Detention, which essentially gives the individuals access to U.S. soil before their court dates.

The smartphones, which cost taxpayers $361,218.08 per day, use facial recognition, GPS monitoring, and voice identification, according to ICE.

Jon Feere, former DHS senior adviser and director of investigations at the Center for Immigration Studies, told the Free Beacon last month that the ATD program has already proven to be a “costly failure,” noting that thousands of illegal immigrants have disappeared annually.

“And there’s no reason to think this will be any different,” Feere said. “The goal should be to quickly determine whether these individuals have a valid case, and if not, to quickly deport them.”

It’s just another example of Biden’s abject failure on the border.
