Republican Texas Rep. Pat Fallon pledged Friday to probe why Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has seemingly underreported the number of illegal aliens released into the country without any tracking technology by more than 18,000%, a discrepancy first exposed by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

ICE indicated in an internal document exclusively obtained by the DCNF that 49,459 illegal aliens were not being monitored with any tracking equipment as of Nov. 14, but the agency’s website said there were 266 with this status Nov. 19. Fallon reacted to the revelation in a Fox and Friends First segment Friday highlighting the DCNF’s report, with host Carley Shimkus asking him about the discrepancy.

“It seems to be a massive one, and we’re gonna get to the bottom of it come January because the Republicans will be back in the majority and the adults in the room will actually be asking the questions,” Fallon said.

“We’re gonna have, I think, a parking space just outside the Rayburn Building just for Alejandro Mayorkas,” he added.

Republicans have already announced several investigations into Biden administration officials, with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy threatening to impeach Mayorkas when the GOP takes power should he not resign.

ICE did not immediately respond to the DCNF’s request for comment.
