Unaccompanied Alien Children: No Minor Problem for U.S.
If past is prologue, “Unaccompanied Alien Children” [UACs] at the southern border pose serious, adult challenges for America.Some 24,680 “Significant Incident Reports” compiled by the government detailed gang connections, drug use, sexual abuse and a wide range of criminal behavior among the UACs processed between May and November 2014. Some UACs were perpetrators, while others were victimized as they were lured into the dangerous trek by prospect of being released into the United States.Though the government reports date back four years, their disturbing accounts only came to light last month via a long-pending 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, which filed the FOIA inquiry.In the reports:
- UACs admitted to committing murders, belonging to MS-13, threatening others with rape, admitting to drug smuggling, molesting other UACs and seriously assaulting other UACs or staff.
- UACs reported being raped and/or molested en route to the United States or in the United States.
- U.S. government contractors and employees were alleged to have abused, assaulted or engaged in sexual relations with UACs.
