“Unaccompanied Alien Children” [UACs] arriving at the southern border of the United States signify a challenge to the Trump administration. According to approximately 24,680 “Significant Incident Reports” compiled by the federal government, narcotrafficking, gang activity, sexual abuse and other forms of criminal activity, were discovered among the UACs processed between May and November 2014 during the surge of alien minors that reached the border during the Obama administration. Some of these minors were the perpetrators of crimes, while others were the victims after being lured to the United States with the prospect of jobs and social welfare programs.
According to Judicial Watch, the government reports date back to the Obama administration, but only came to light in June after the government complied with a long-standing Freedom of Information Act request. “These Significant Incident Reports from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reveal that Unaccompanied Alien Children processed during the Obama administration included admitted murderers, rapists, drug smugglers, prostitutes and human traffickers,” stated Judicial Watch.
Among the crimes in which UACs have admittedly participated are murders, drug-smuggling, sexual assault of minors, homosexual rape, serious assault of government staff, rape and involvement with the violent MS-13 criminal organization. In addition, numerous UACs were subjected to rape or sexual molestation either en route or within the United States. Also, U.S. government contractors and employers are alleged to have engaged in abuse, assault and sexual relations with UACs. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton was quoted to say, “The Obama administration presided over a humanitarian and public safety nightmare in its handling of Unaccompanied Alien Children.”
In a separate report by the federal Department of Health and Human Services, the federal government paid Baptist Children and Family Services $182,129,786 to provide “basic shelter care” to 2,400 UACs for four months at two military bases in 2014. Thus, the organization received approximately $86,846.34 to care for each illegal alien child at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma. Fitton said, “These reports support the Trump administration’s contention that the UAC crisis, which continues, includes murderers, rapists, drug smugglers and human traffickers being routinely allowed into the United States.”
