Illegal Immigrants Get Free Smartphones Paid for by US Taxpayers...• https://www.thegatewaypundit.com, By Jim Hoft
As of today, Friday, the Title 42 border protection order has officially expired, and the United States is preparing for a record-breaking flood of illegal immigrants at the southern border.
On Thursday, independent journalist Tayler Hansen shared a video on Twitter showing illegal aliens using U.S. taxpayer-funded cell phones after they were given court dates.
In 2022, the Biden regime reportedly issued over 300,000 smartphones to illegal aliens as part of the "Alternatives to Detention Program (ATD).
According to ICE, smartphones cost taxpayers $361,218.08 per day, per ABC News.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) claimed the phones' facial recognition, GPS tracking, and voice-identifying features are used to keep track of new illegal immigrants while they wait for their court dates.
According to Hansen, some of the illegal immigrants' court dates reportedly won't be until 2027.
New York Post reported that some illegal immigrants were given court dates set as late as 2032 and 2035 in Chicago and Florida.
