We all know why. Not only is it incompetence but it is the open borders policy of Biden.

Biden Withholds Annual Report on Deportations - ICE fails to produce annual report for first time in more than a decade

The Biden administration has yet to release a report that details the number of illegal immigrants removed from the United States in 2021, keeping the public in the dark about its handling of the immigration crisis.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement did not release its annual report in 2021, a departure from standard agency practice since at least 2011. In each of the last nine years, ICE released the report in the final weeks of the calendar year, most recently on Dec. 23, 2020 during the Trump administration.

It is unclear whether ICE has completed the report, which provides a lengthy summary of the agency’s enforcement and removal operations, as well as immigration-related security threats. A spokeswoman for the immigration agency told the Washington Free Beacon a release date for the report has not been determined.

The absence of the 2021 annual report has prompted outrage on Capitol Hill. Sen. Josh Hawley (R., Mo.) questioned the motives behind the White House's secrecy on the topic of immigration.

"During record-breaking levels of illegal immigration, DHS and ICE have taken steps to dismantle interior enforcement operations that keep our communities safe from criminal aliens," Hawley told the Free Beacon. "I’ve been calling for transparency into these radical policy changes for months. If ICE is intentionally hiding their annual report from the public, then it’s safe to assume it doesn’t show any improvement; it shows failure."

The administration's decision not to release the ICE report marks the latest example of Biden's failure to live up to transparency standards set by both its Democratic and Republican predecessors. The Free Beacon in November reported that the White House violated a congressional statute with its failure to release its report on the number of illegal immigrants in the United States. The 2021 fiscal year saw more recorded illegal border crossings than any time in U.S. history.

This latest evasion comes as just 35 percent of voters approve of Biden's handling of immigration, according to a RealClearPolitics average of recent polls. Critics of the president's immigration policy accused Biden of hiding statistics as a way to avoid bad press.

That's fine, till he comes out with it we can make hay with our own wild assumptions because that is what people will remember, not some belated report.

The misinformation sword cuts both ways and it's about time we used the weapons at hand.....That "high road" is paved with the bones of defeated right-leaning politicians.

Apparently that report does not reflect well on Biden and the democrats. Which comes as no surprise.

Joe was just too busy mismanaging the rest of the country to get around to screwing up this report as well.

I mean, can this ICE report really put Joe in an undue light after what he has ALREADY done?
