President Joe Biden’s handling of the immigration crisis at the southern U.S. border is already considered abysmal by a majority of Americans, but new revelations published by watchdog group Judicial Watch reveal an even more disturbing layer to the situation.
According to Judicial Watch’s website, last month, a trove of 33 documents was obtained by the group from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) that indicated there have been no less than 33 documented incidents of alleged sexual abuse against detained unaccompanied minors.
Notably, the 33 incidents all happened within a month’s time, from January to February of this year. A majority of those incidents allegedly occurred in “voluntary agencies” (VOLAGs), which are the agencies tasked with caring for the young children who often end up alone on U.S. soil.
Even more disturbing is that only around 10 of the alleged incidents involved adult care workers, while the majority of them involved incidents between the unaccompanied minors.
“These documents show that not only are there shocking reports of sexual abuse occurring in shelters for unaccompanied children, but that there is violence amongst the UACs themselves,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton noted.
He added: “It is no surprise that Biden administration’s enabling of human trafficking has resulted in violence and the abuse of children.”
While such situations strangely received little fanfare in the bulk of the mainstream media, Fox News reported in April that Texas Gov. Greg Abbott actually ordered the closure of one particular facility that housed unaccompanied minors after multiple abuse incidents were reported.
“Gov. Greg Abbott demanded that the White House close a San Antonio facility housing migrant children Wednesday following allegations that children there were being sexually assaulted,” the report indicated.
In other words, not only is the Biden-Harris administration completely incapable of getting a handle on the immigration crisis at the border, they’re clearly unable to manage what happens inside the facilities after the migrant children are detained. It’s quite sickening, to say the least.
