Nearly half of all illegal immigrant children dont show up for their deportation hearings, federal officials testified to Congress on Wednesday, underscoring just how easy it is for those surging across the border right now to disappear into the shadows.
The number could be even higher for the current surge of unaccompanied children flooding across the border, who are often released to illegal immigrant parents who have no incentive to bring their children to immigration courts.
And federal authorities specifically refuse to ask the legal status of the parents or relatives who come to claim the children, officials acknowledged.
We do not verify the immigration status of the individual, said Mark H. Greenberg, acting assistant secretary at the Department of Health and Human Services, adding that its department policy not to ask that question.

And let me guess, no photo id required?
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
More and more pathetic by the day
** IN YOUR FACE AMERICA **
How often do they release American kids to total strangers without proving who they are?
Our jobs are simply to show up (occasionally), collect our paychecks, courtesy of American taxpayers and not ask questions. Our motto is SEE NO EVIL, HEAR NO EVIL, SPEAK NO EVIL. And all you folks questioning our department regulations are just plain EVIL!
HHS’ new name:
A Politically Correct reason for not enforcing immigration law...............Governors who are responsible for their states safety and economy should be in charge of this invasion of illegals.
“And let me guess, no photo id required?”
“But while you ... new Americans are hear, whaddya say—let’s sign you up to vote!” Any Obama DHS minion
“You know which party, right? Yeah, check right next to the `D`. Here, let me help you. Gimme your mano ... X. Bueno, muy bueno. Now, make sure you’re at that hearing!” Wink wink, shove out the door
All of this going on, the Republic being dismantled.
And nothing from the GOP but throat-clearing and harrumphing ... directed at us!
But they’re calling and wanting money from us, aren’t they.
I recommend that they wish in one hand and crap in the other and see which one fills up first...
The Constitution's silence about immigration means that it is a 10th Amendment-protected state power issue. So the feds don't have the constitutional authoriity to prohibit the states from asking legal status imo.
Right you are.
So these kids go to people who are unknown to the government? The government does not want to know the S/S number of the people taking the kids, no background check is made? What is to stop people taking these kids as sex slaves or unpaid laborers.
I wonder if they even verify their familial DNA to claim these children. Especially the young ones.
You cannot adopt a kid from Guatemala with them having a DNA test to match up their birth family to make sure they weren’t stolen and trafficked.
Looks like anyone who wants a young kid can just brush up on their Spanish and go claim to be an aunt or uncle or...whatever
