An Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesman has revealed that 70% of illegal immigrants released into the United States this year have failed to subsequently appear at immigration hearings.

The AP repeatedly asked for figures about the number of immigrants released into the United States but each time they asked ICE refused to offer any details. However, ICE held a private meeting with immigration advocates in Washington D.C. Wednesday during which a representative revealed the figures during a discussion. An audio tape of the gathering was then leaked to the AP.
