ICE Non-Detained Docket Explodes to 7.4m Cases

Michael Lee, Fox News, June 17, 2024

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency’s non-detained docket has surged to over 7 million cases in fiscal year 2024.

Internal federal data obtained by Fox News shows that the ICE non-detained docket has hit 7.4 million cases and is on track to reach 8 million by the end of the fiscal year, multiple federal sources confirmed to Fox News.


The non-detained docket has added more than 1 million cases since October 1 and more than doubled since President Biden took office in 2021, when the docket had just under 3.7 million cases on it.

The number of those on the non-detained docket also does not include the nearly 1.9 million recorded getaways that have entered the country since Biden took office, federal sources said, noting that those migrants have not had any contact with the Department of Homeland Security.

Nevertheless, those 1.9 million are also the responsibility of ICE officers, who are tasked with tracking down and removing those migrants, in addition to managing the non-detained docket.
