'Hundreds' of illegal immigrant children being handed to relatives who're in US illegally too
The London Daily Mail ^ | June 18, 2014 | David Martosko, U.S. Political Editor

Posted on 06/18/2014 9:05:29 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services makes no effort to determine the immigration status of adult relatives when they show up to claim unaccompanied minor children who entered the U.S. illegally, a spokesman at the agency confirmed on Wednesday.

Tens of thousands of the under-18s – 'Unaccompanied Alien Children' (UACs) in government-speak – have poured across the U.S.-Mexico border in recent months, creating what President Barack Obama has termed an 'urgent humanitarian situation.'

HHS, which houses them until family members can be found, has begun releasing illegal immigrant children 'by the hundreds' into the custody of adults who are illegal immigrants themselves, an HHS official familiar with the situation on America's southern border told MailOnline late on Tuesday.

An official spokesman for HHS's Administration for Children and Families confirmed on Wednesday that the agency has no system in place to verify whether the adults are here legally.

Kenneth Wolfe told MailOnline on Wednesday that 'around 90 percent of the minors in the UAC program are released to verified sponsors (mostly family members) in the U.S.'

Asked if 'verified' means that the adults' immigration status has been checked, he responded, 'No.'

He also answered 'no' when asked if there is 'an effort made to ascertain the immigration status of the adults who claim the kids.'(continued)

Those wanting to claim a child must be a parent, relative, or at least look hispanic. Those who cannot write can just mark the claim form with an X.

Here is where States do have rights.
Child Protective Services can step in and severe parental rights of any parent in their jurisdiction.
States should do just that, in order to discourage this stuff.
I would think that sending kids out, in the weather, with no food or provisions, would constitute abuse.

Unfortunately many of them are compromised by commitments they made in exchange for contributions from the open borders lobbies like the Chamber of Cronies.

Well, it is either that, or the attempt at total destruction of the country. Maybe a combination of the two.

Wait for it; five, seven years from now, you’ll see new One Act Plays, and Unauthorized Biographies written in spanish, then translated to english from some of these young arrivals. Some will say they were kept as sex slaves or forced to steal by their host relatives. Child labor laws will be violated. The lawyers will then have a new wave of victims to sue for, and they will be exploited once again. Their parents share some, if not all the blame for abdicated their role of being responsible for the welfare of their children. I’m surprised there are so many kids coming alone from far south of Mexico.

Good! Now that they’ve been reunited, send the whole family unit home and let their own government deal with them! To paraphrase Nazi Pelosi, they are not OUR “responsibility”.

The woman I saw on tv tonight said she hasn’t seen her kids in 8 years. That means she came here and left them in Guatemala when they were 7 and 2 years old.

Lolololololol

Excuse me for laughing hysterically.

I had a foster child whose parent used heroin while pregnant. Abuse, right?

The states plan? Return child to parent.

Let me get this straight; the children are being released to people who's identity is unknown? This will not be followed up by social workers? How do they know they are not delivering these children into slavery or prostitution, since they have to pay for getting up north somehow.

We had one whose mother used crack. She abandoned him in a crack hose when it was raided. She was blue eyed blond American and his father was an illegal from Nicaragua. That baby lived with us for 2 years, from the time he was 6 weeks old until he was 2 years old, and yes the judge gave him back to his mother at the urging of The Association of Black and Hispanic Social Workers. He belonged in his own culture they said and opposed our wish to adopt him. The condemned him to a life of further abandonment and disruption, not what was best for him, but what best served their agenda.

Understood, however, the point is to make the Illegal PARENTS think twice about this “free pass” or “amnesty” gambit.
All we need is a good video clip, a news clip, of child protective services getting involved and it would have a great deterrent effect.

I don’t believe that - how could they even find the illegal relatives? Everybody knows they “live in the shadows”.

I’m not sure where you’re at, but I saw a similar thing play out in Louisiana a few years ago.

A loving, well-balanced couple looking to adopt. Two little girls about 3 and 5 found their mom dead from an overdose and were put into the system. After a year of checks by the state, the girls were about to be adopted by my friends.

At the last minute, some relative found out they could get state money to adopt the girls and found a friendly ‘family’ judge. The girls were tossed back into the squalor of trailer living, meth, heroine, and probably sexual abuse.

They’re still being prayed for, but no one knows where they’re at now.

Disgusting what happens to children in the name of political correctness. We’re damned if we don’t look out for the little ones.

I suppose that displays a different type of Family Values that what we would generally expect. Maybe one has to consider how bad the economy and gang warfare is in these Central American countries. But that still should not obigate us into taking a fresh dumping of over a million untrained, UNVACINNATED, illiterate people in the middle of a recession.

I don’t think so. One sibling group I had was taken from illegal aliens (anchor babies) then returned to them a few weeks later. Within a few months the social worker called me asking if I would take the children again as they were back in custody. It’s a revolving door for the kids and some time off for the deadbeat illegal parents with the foster families as free babysitters. And the state rarely severs “parental” rights.

How did the judge consider his mother to be ethnic since she was blond and blue eyed? Never mind. I know the answer. The system does not protect the children, it protects the abusive parents.

So sorry that you ( and especially the little boy) had to experience it.

I am against amnesty for illegal immigrants.

What the pro-amnesty people forget to mention: There are millions of children in Asia and Africa who also desperately want to sneak to the United States, but the oceans stop them from doing so.

So is it fair to let these illegal immigrants from Latin America free admission when millions of desperate children in Asia and Africa want to sneak into the United States also? Sad this Obama administration.

Votes? If only that was it. No, this tsunami of aliens is being co-ordinated by the left to bring about the total destruction of our nation, of our sovereignty, of our American culture, of Judeo-Christian values, of civil society, and of the rule of law.

When the tidal wave has swept over all of the land, the US of A will be no more. In its place will be a Third World hell hole where English is spoken in isolated pockets by a minority of people who can’t seem to adjust to the new ways of paying bribes to government officials and police.

What? Are you trying to slow down economic expansion? The prostitution and slavery increase will now be leading indicators of economic development in the left’s new system.

Fellow Texans, keep burning up the faxes, emails and phones at the governor’s office and the offices of your representatives!

Ask what they intend to do about the massive invasion of illegal aliens into Texas, bringing crime, disease, drugs and unbelievable expense to the state to care for them.

This is sheer insanity!

HOUSTON, Texas—Governor Rick Perry (R-TX) appeared on Fox News’ Fox and Friends show and said Texas lacks the resources and manpower to secure the 1,200 mile Texas border... BS!

Other Texas elected officials, speaking on condition of anonymity have told Breitbart Texas that Texas does, in fact, have the resources to conduct not only a surge operation, but a prolonged border control operation that would secure the Texas border with Mexico.

I agree.

I have some friends that are US citizens of Korean heritage (over 40 so it’s more difficult to adopt in the US as I’ve been told) and they wanted to adopt a Korean baby (I understand that). They went though all the processes and appropriate channels. They were to be able to adopt a baby and were told they had been approved, that there was one for them and they thought (based on what was told to them) they would get the baby in a relatively short time. It took them TWO years to get the child due to governmental red tape (to be fair it was primarily on the So Korea side IIRC). The child was living in a foster home in So Korea. They were finally able to obtain parental status after two years. Given early child bonding with a parental figure is essential, it was and has been difficult for them and the child, but luckily, with a lot of hard work and patience it is working out and the child seems to have finally adjusted for the most part and has bonded with them. They want to adopt another child - God bless them for going through the hard work, heartaches, and determination. This child will have a wonderful life with two hard-working, loving, Christian parents.
